email me, I was going through some of our
old discussions on this matter : http://rhodium.lycaeum.org/chemistry/yeast.txt 

and I have some new ideas and corrections to make.

My email is rhodium@nym.lycaeum.org - Perhaps you would also want to talk to Shulgin about your thoughts on Salvinorin et al, he'll include a chapter on those diterpenes in his forthcoming book, QIHKAL.

Is there really a QIHKAL in the works? Please say yes. What does the "Q" stand for?

iso-Quinolines I have...
It is a reference work on all cacti alkaloids (+ some opium alkaloids), plus chapters on non-alkaloidal psychoactive compounds and plants, such as diterpenes like Salvinorin (he mentioned something like 300 mint-like plants containing 1000 diterpenes which might be candidates for self-trials) - he also said he would include GHB and its analogs in that chapter, he contacted me because he liked my invention 4-Me-GHB

Rhodium: Is 4-Me-GHB from y-valerolactone? I decided not to say anything about it in my 'brainstorming' thread in General. I guess I could have though.

Yes it is, and about 1.5 as potent as GHB, slightly longer lived, and the effects are more anti-anxiety and less euphoric.
The synthesis was carried out as follows:

8 grams (0.2 moles) of sodium hydroxide was dissolved in 50 ml of methanol
with gentle heating, and some insolubles was filtered off. 20 grams of
gamma-hydroxy-valerolactone (0.2 moles) was added as fast as the exothermic
reaction allowed, the solvent was evaporated in vacuo, and the wet, soapy
residue was dried in a desiccator over CaCl2. The crude product was finely
ground in a mortar, placed in a buchner funnel, washed with 200 ml of
acetone and sucked as dry as possible at the pump. After drying over CaCl2,
the Sodium gamma-Hydroxy-Valerate, a deliquescent, white, crispy and
slightly soapy powder, weighed 26.9 grams (96% of theory) and had a
pleasant aromatic odor, and a taste not unlike that of Sodium GHB itself.

with 128 optical isomers alone, plus hundreds of feasible subs. ... do the math! there are easily hundreds of thousands of potential salvinorin homologs.

Yes, but not naturally occurring, which was what Shulgin was referring to.

...Not to mention essentially ZERO information on any structural activity relationships, other than that salvinorin B, identical in every way to salvinorin A minus one acetoxy group, showed none of the same entheogenic qualities that salvinorin A did. Its cute synthetic chemistry (well, not even that really), but not of any practical value.

Oh, this was an old thread... Are you referring to Shulgin's book?

Rhodium: Is Shulgin ever going to do a reference work on cathinones? CIHKAL maybe?

I doubt that. As he is throwing in all kinds of compounds in this book, I have a feeling he is going to make it his last *IHKAL book.
Why can't you write a CIHKAL for my page, you're the expert on that topic, right?
