Thread premise stolen from Bluelight. Post molecules you think would make promising drugs. They can be totally novel, or known substances that, for whatever reason (synthetic difficulty, obscurity, poor effects) have never hit the recreational market. Relevant links (literature papers, PiHKAL, trip reports, syntheses, etc.) encouraged.

I’ll start with this one. This molecule is 3-methoxy-4-propoxyamphetamine (“POMA”). It’s active as a mildly psychedelic stimulant and mood elevator. Someone has already synthesized and trialed this compound; you can read the full report here (https://bitnest.netfirms.com/external.php?id=%25087%253B%250B9%2501%2509Czzy%2505)

Not terribly exciting, but interesting all the same. He starts with clove oil (containing eugenol), but an alternative route would be to start with vanillin (much cheaper than clove oil), O-propylate, condense with nitroethane, and reduce.

I want to be a scientist. I want to research and be active and feel like I'm actually getting something done. What sciencey things can I do in my free time that will actually bring me closer to these goals?

I look things up on wikipedia constantly. I regularly check on a site that summarizes recent scientific papers. Isn't there something more that I can be doing while waiting for the GRE to come around that would help me reach my goals?

I work full time in a microbiology lab, but working for a company isn't the same as working for a cause. What science related things do you do? For a living or for enjoyment and fulfillment or just to kill time? What science websites do you look at? What science hobbies do you have?

About 8 years ago i read this article or theory or whatever, and it talked about how each substance/neurotransmitter influenced the evolution of human beings aswell as formed a new layer of their brain.

For example, it said that the base layer of the brain correlated with opiates and was like being in the womb and compared it to comfort and the very inner layer of the brain.
Then the next layer was alcohol and GABA saying that it formed the part of our brain that was used for socializing and stuff like that
Then the next layer was for dopamine and amphetamines and stuff like that used for creating and building things.
And it went on from there. I've looked everywhere to find this publication just so i could reread it because it popped into my head. I consider myself a pretty good googler but after hours of searching i couldn't find it for the life of me.

If anyone else remembers this publication, could they point me in the right direction?

Thanks

Nematodes. These lil' wiggly dudes. Four out of five individual animals alive today are nematodes. They live in and on you and fucking everything else. They have been found living in mines 3.6 km (12,000 ft) underground . Nematodes are very important organisms of study because they are some of the simplest animals. They are still incredibly complex.
Caenorhabditis elegans is the only animal to have it's neuronal system completely mapped. There are species of fungi that live out their entire life cycle inside its intestines.

OK so /chem/ i purchased some drugs online but instead they sent me 98% para-hydroxy-cinnamic acid. what id like to know is can i use this despite only being 98% could i use this in the same way as people use acetic anhydride to add acetyl groups to open hydroxy positions specifically in opis at the 3,6,or 14 hydroxy positions? if not is it useful for really anything?

Basic 1st year equilibrium reaction laws apply.

You have to make it into an anhydrous with SOCl. This is going to be like acetylation with Acetic Acid. It can't work because it'll generate AcOH before it makes Ac-Morph. that's why you have to make Acetic Anhydride first before doing any acetylation.

Does anyone know of any good documentaries about how different drugs effect the brain? Not scare factor "durgs r bad", I'm looking for something about the chemical reactions in an unbiased setting. Something that gets deep into, from ingestion to end of effect, how it metabolises, stores in the body, what endorphins and neurotransmitters things release and what effect that has.

It's a shot in the dark, but drug neurochemistry is an odd hobby/interest of mine and I figure this might be one of the most niche forums that I could ask.

I took a class on medicinal chemistry at the end of my chem degree. It was basically drug design. It covered most of what you're asking about, although it wasn't just about the brain. I don't know if you'll find that kind of thing in documentary form.

For the last day of class he told us to tell him what we wanted to know about, and he would make a lecture on it. I asked about the brain, just anything about drug design and the brain. He just laughed and said the brain is so god damn complicated that there's no way we could do anything in one lecture, let alone one class or several classes.

Everytime. Every fucking time I try and synthesize GBL using the Sandmeyer reaction, the temperature skyrockets up to 40c and a bunch of foam forms atop the post reaction mix. I've used many different brands of HCl, GABA, and Sodium Nitrite. I've even begun to use a mini freezer to perform the reaction. And yet everytime the temperature goes up to 40 - 50 degrees Celsius. What in the hell am I doing wrong? I am following all of the instructions, but it's impossible to keep the reaction below 2 degrees C, and to stop the foam from developing, even with a goddamn mini freezer. The rate at which I add the HCl does not seem to matter. The amount of stirring doesn't seem to make a difference either. Could anybody help a complete amateur out?

heres an idea. instead of using that reaction why not do an easier synth? i just found a gbl synth thats one step and two ingredients.

Go buy some THF (tetrahydrofuran) a pretty common solvent. then use a strong oxidizer like what i read says to use aqueous sodium bromate but idk if theres anything actual special about that oxidizer or if pretty much any equally strong oxidizer would work. the THF then forms GBL in a one step one pot reaction.

organic chemistry will teach you that bromination is a method to turn cyclohexene into benzene
industrial chemistry will teach you that method is only valid up to 5g on a lab scale and impractical for real life

wokest brain organic chemistry will tell you that since cannabinol has no enantiomers, you can do a very, very easy full synthesis from industrial chemicals like we do with 90% of all the drugs we have. if you want CBN on a large scale, total synthesis is probably the way to go (unlike with THC that has multiple chiral centers)

Sup /chem/,

I'm taking general physics 2 this semester and I have the same professor I had for physics 1. Now it's just algebra-based, and I've been through calculus, so I was able to breeze through Newtonian mechanics and all that. However this semester is about electromagnetism, circuits, and optics. All topics I have zero exposure to. Now the professor is new to teaching at the college level, his experience is teaching middle-schoolers. He is very (obliviously) condescending and talks to his class of adults like they are 12. He constantly makes sexist or racist jokes (but on the fence enough to not get in trouble) and is always ranting about his personal life or past experiences. When he finally does an actual problem on the board he always struggles with basic spelling and arithmetic, and often fundamentally misunderstands the physics concept he is trying to teach. Several times last semester I had to quietly approach him after class and explain how everything he lectured that day was flawed and the next lecture he would try to fix his fuckup but he ended up just giving everyone lots of freebies on the exams.

My concern is that in this new semester of material I will not get a good exposure or foundation in these topics and might be lost in future courses. Especially electricity and circuits, I really want to learn more about that. I am worried he will teach me some fundamental concepts backward or something. Other than pre-reading the text before class what would you guys recommend to get through this course when the professor is a complete idiot and in my opinion not qualified?

What future courses require algebra-based physics as a prerequisite? No physics or chemistry or engineering course would normally accept it as a substitution.

>what would you guys recommend to get through this course when the professor is a complete idiot and in my opinion not qualified?

Have you tried switching into the calculus-based physics 2 course? That would seem to be like the best course of action; you'll get a different (and better) professor and a stronger foundation in E&M since many of the concepts are only naturally expressible by calculus (in fact, most of vector calculus was invented for E&M).

I would guess that the reason why the professor is so bad is probably because the college see algebra-based physics as a remedial class for weak students outside of STEM to fulfill their technical gen-ed requirements and doesn't want to spend resources on it....

so this professor has called out of work the past 3/4 classes. not sure if he is even coming back next week. also the last lecture i had the sub was flushed, had red eyes, mumbled really quietly to himself, and when i approached him, reeked of vodka. so basically i am teaching myself about charges and electric energy and shit

LOL. Where is this. I'm unemployed, and could definitely be a sub there.
