      Large-scale syntheses of Psilocin/Psilocybin
(Rated as: excellent)

Java: I've found that article at about the same time as you did, just saw it! Amazing... Amazing...

However, here is the full-text for those without acsess:

Abstract: The concise large-scale syntheses of psilocin (1) and psilocybin (2), the principal hallucinogenic constituents of "magic mushroom", were achieved without chromatographic purification. The key step in the synthesis of 2 was the isolation of the dibenzyl-protected intermediate (7) as a zwitterionic derivative (8), which was completely identified by means of 2D NMR analyses.

This is major advance when it comes to synth of psilocybin considering the shitty yield (10%) as presented in TiHKAL for the preparation of the phosphate ester...
