|AMT and AET from Tryptophan and electrolysis||Bookmark|
I know that some of you don't like electro-cheistry. Well I'm sowewhat a fan of it. However I still don't have an electrolysis-cell but what they make possible is great.
So let's go for AMT and AET from Tryptophan with the help of electrochemistry.
Tryptophan + SOCl2 --> tryptamin-C(=O)Cl
Tryptophan --> Indol-3-acetaldehyd
Indol-3-acetaldehyd + CH3NO2 --> [uhm well how is this called ?]
[uhm well how is this called ?] + eC --> AMT
Indol-3-acetaldehyd + CH3-CH2-NO2 --> [indol-nitrobutene ?]
[indol-nitrobutene ?] + eC --> AET
Tryptophan + eC --> Tryptamin-CH2-OH [not sure]
Tryptamin-CH2-OH + SOCl2 --> Tryptamin-CH2-Cl
Tryptamin-CH2-Cl + BrMg-CH3 --> AET
So are these speculations worth shit or more ?
