Title: Correct chemical structure for LSD
Post by: 7thChakra on December 10, 2010, 01:24:25 PM
I have been looking all over the internet for the chemical structure of LSD and have found different pictures with each claiming to be the structure of LSD.

They are all correct, however Dr. Hofmann's drawing is a alternative form (expanded and compressed) which may lead to some confusion. I'd go with the first one, it's the most appropriate with consideration to receptor docking.
