Purpose The aim of this study was to clarify the most essential analytical features of N-(adamantan-1-yl)-1-(cyclohexylmethyl)-1H-indazole-3-carboxamide (one of the newest cannabimimetics called ACHMINACA), to make them useful for analytical identification of this compound. Methods The compound was analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, high-resolution liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry, crystal X-ray diffraction and spectroscopic methods such as nuclear magnetic resonance,

Conclusions Although brief descriptions of the partial data of ACHMINACA have appeared recently, this article provides the most detailed and comprehensive analytical data of ACHMINACA to our knowledge. Our data will significantly broaden the knowledge about the compound structure extending the possibility of its orthogonal analysis. The gathered data are useful for forensic, toxicological, and clinical purposes.
