Methamphetamine Manufacture

Either (-)-ephedrine or (+)-pseudoephedrine can be used to make meth-amphetamine by reductive dehalogenation using red phosphorus as a catalyst.

As this synthetic route has become nearly universal, both state and federal governments have enacted laws limiting the amount of pure ephedrine or pseudoephedrine that can be purchased.
