    Desomorphine (dihydrodesoxymorphine, Permonid) is an opioid first patented in 1932 in the United States that is a derivative of morphine, where the 6-hydroxyl group has been removed and the 7,8 double bond has been reduced.[1] It has sedative and analgesic effects, and is around 8-10 times more potent than morphine.[2][3][4][5] It was used[clarification needed] in Switzerland under the brand name Permonid, and was described as having a fast onset and a short duration of action, with relatively little nausea or respiratory depression compared to equivalent doses of morphine. The traditional synthesis of desomorphine starts from α-chlorocodide, which is itself obtained by reacting thionyl chloride with codeine. By catalytic reduction, α-chlorocodide gives dihydrodesoxycodeine, which yields desomorphine on demethylation.[6][7]

    This is a synthesized for of opiate, 3 times more potent than heroin and 1/10th the price. It causes rotting sore in the users. I never heard of it until a while ago. It is popular in Russia where heroin is scarce. Sales of codeine products have soared as makers make it from them and fairly easy to get chemicals.
