Correct chemical structure for LSD
« 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.








 Can you guys point me in the right direction?

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.
I'm still learning - always check my work/answer.
