(–)-2β-Carbomethoxy-3β-(4'-chlorophenyl)tropane (RTI-31) is a synthetic analog of cocaine that acts as a stimulant.[1] Semi-synthesis of this compound is dependent upon the availability of cocaine starting material.

Further chemical modification of RTI-31 leads to novel chemical entities, some of them are highly potent, and one of them has been reported as lasting for three days.[2]

RTI-31 is also used in the synthesis of other compounds such as RTI-113 and RTI-336.
