Abstract: A method for the alkylation of 3-unsubstituted indoles by means of 1-(ω-haloalkyl)pyridinium salts via the Friedel-Crafts reaction with the aid of complex catalysts, viz. complexes of zinc, tin and titanium chlorides with pyridine, was developed. On the basis of a study of the electronic spectra of the resulting 1-(3-indolylalkyl)pyridinium salts it was shown that they are molecular self-complexes. The stabilities of the molecular self-complexes were investigated as a function of the length of the alkyl chain and the character of the substituents in the indole ring.

Application of transcerebral, weak (1 microT) complex magnetic fields and mystical experiences: are they generated by field-induced dimethyltryptamine release from the pineal organ? (Added 04-07-04):
Hill DR, Persinger MA.
Percept Mot Skills. 97, 1049-50 (2003) (

During the last 15 years weak, complex magnetic fields have been applied across the two cerebral hemispheres at the level of the temporoparietal lobes of more than 500 volunteers. Most of these subjects have reported visual, vestibular, and proprioceptive sensations as well as experiences of detachment from the body of 'sentient beings'. Similar but more intense experiences were reported by Strassman in 2001 for volunteers who were injected with N,n-dimethyltryptamine, a compound Strassman hypothesized as the primary mediator of these experiences. If this speculation is valid, then subjects who are exposed to the very weak, complex fields known to elicit similar experiences should display significant increases in the metabolites of this compound within their blood.

   The essential oil obtained by steam distillation of crushed seeds of parsley at 2 atm pressure was separated into 2 fractions which were analysed by GC. The oil was shown to contain apiole (57.6%), myristicin (10.8%), allyltetramethoxybenzene (0.8%) and terpenes: α-pinene (9.1%), camphene (0.3%), sabinene (6.3%), α-terpinene (1.8%), limonene (3.1%), γ-terpinene (0.2%) and p-cymene (2.8%). The derivatives of phenols were characterized by oxidation into apiolaldehyde (m. p. 101-102 °C) and tetramethoxybenzoic (m. p. 85-86 °C) and myristicinic (m. p. 206-207 °C) acids.

   I pretty much disbelieve the whole article. The authors claim that they separated the essential oil of parsley into the "phenolic" fraction (myristicin, apiole, and allyltetramethoxybenzene) and the neutral fraction (various terpenes) by means of 5% solution of KOH as if there were phenolic hydroxyls in apiole etc.

Article in Italian. 473 kB (w/pictures).
   The pharmacological properties (adrenergic) of substituted 3-phenylazetidines have been studied. 3-Phenylazetidine (L 2051) shows both excitatory and inhibitory effects on the β-sympathetic receptors: in small doses it produces increase in heart rate and contractile force; this effect is antagonized by dichloroisopropylarterenol. In high doses the drug reduces the effects of isopropylarterenol, and inhibits the inotropic action of epinephrine and arterenol. A biphasic action of L 2051 may be demonstrated also on the site of the α-receptors. The pharmacological activity of L 2051 may depend, at least in part, on histamine liberation. These various activities of L 2051 were found isolated in some of its derivatives.
   There is no synthetic part in the article. The derivatives of 3-phenylazetidine were synthesized according to the following publications:

Genetic and pharmacological evidence of a role for GABA(B) receptors in the modulation of anxiety- and antidepressant-like behavior. (Added 06-21-04):
Mombereau C, Kaupmann K, Froestl W, Sansig G, van der Putten H, Cryan JF.
Neuropsychopharmacology 29(6), 1050-62 (2004)

Although there is much evidence for a role of the inhibitory neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the pathophysiology of anxiety and depression, the role of GABA(B) receptors in behavioral processes related to these disorders has not yet been fully established. GABA(B) receptors are G-protein-coupled receptors, which act as functional heterodimers made up of GABA(B(1)) and GABA(B(2)) subunits. Using recently generated GABA(B(1)) -/- mice, which lack functional GABA(B) receptors, and pharmacological tools we assessed the role of GABA(B) receptors in anxiety- and antidepressant-related behaviors. In the light-dark box, GABA(B(1)) -/- mice were more anxious than their wild-type littermates (less time spent in the light; reduced number of transitions). GABA(B(1)) -/- mice were also more anxious in the staircase test. Conversely, acute and chronic treatment with GS39783, a novel GABA(B) receptor positive modulator, decreased anxiety in the light-dark box and elevated zero maze tests for anxiety. On the other hand, GABA(B(1)) -/- mice had decreased immobility (antidepressant-like behavior) in the forced swim test (FST). These behavioral effects are unrelated to alterations in locomotor activity. In confirmation of the genetic data, acute and chronic treatment with CGP56433A, a selective GABA(B) receptor antagonist, also decreased immobility in the FST, whereas GS39783 did not alter this behavior. Taken together, these data suggest that positive modulation of the GABA(B) receptor may serve as a novel therapeutic strategy for the development of anxiolytics, whereas GABA(B) receptor antagonism may serve as a basis for the generation of novel antidepressants.

The adulteration of drugs: What dealers do to illicit drugs, and what they think is done to them (Added 09-13-04):
Coomber, Ross, Addiction Research 5(4),  297-306 (1997)

The notion that street drugs have been adulterated/diluted by dangerous substances such as Vim, Ajax, ground glass, brick dust and even rat poison is common. Moreover, it is a practice believed to be true by those involved with the researching of drug issues, the treatment and rehabilitation of drug users, the policing of drug users and the educating of drug users (R. Coomber, 1996) as well as by the users themselves. This paper shows, through survey of 31 admitted or convicted drug dealers, that it is also thought to happen and be perpetrated by those who are deemed to be responsible for such adulteration/dilution: the dealers themselves. This, however, does not accord with the forensic evidence, or, as are the concerns of this paper with the practice or experience of individual drug dealers. This paper suggests, on the evidence of interviews with drug dealers at different levels of the drug distribution chain that less adulteration/dilution actually occurs than previously thought and that when it does happen "on the street" it is of relatively benign character.

The series of analogues studied includes the compounds formed through substitution of hydrogen or halogen atoms in place of the methyl group of the 3-tolyl substituent in methaqualone. Additionally, the substituent's positional orientation of ortho, meta, or para is considered. Infrared, nuclear magnetic resonance, and mass spectra of the compounds are distinctive, and reference spectra are provided. Gas-liquid and thin-layer chromatographic systems for analysis of the compounds as well as melting point and ultraviolet data are discussed.

Lettieri J, Fung H-L, Research Communications in Chemical Pathology and Pharmacology 22(1), 107-118 (1978)

Although gamma-butyrolactone (GBL) rapidly converts to gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB) in vivo, the lactone gave significantly more prolonged hypnotic effects than GHB when equimolar doses were compared both parenterally and orally in rats. Plasma drug concentrations were higher after GBL administration through both routes, consistent with the observed differences in the pharmacological activity of these two compounds. Oral GBL was absorbed much faster than oral GHB, with the dual effects of decreasing potential first-pass metabolism and elevating plasma drug concentrations to the region where capacity-limited elimination is operative. Parenteral GBL produced a slower initial drug plasma clearance than parenteral GHB. In spite of the rapid metabolism of GBL to GHB, the apparent tissue distribution of these two compounds may be different.
