According to one of those papers - and I quote -"(Pacifici et al., 1962; Gröger and Tylet, 1936). Kobel
et al. (1964) then described an isolate of C. paspali which
produced high yields of delta-8,9 lysergic acid in submerged
culture. This product is readily converted to delta-9,10
lysergic acid by heating with dilute aqueous alkali"
the delta-8,9 lysergic acid must be paspalic acid
(we all know the conversion which has been posted on this
forum and which can also be found at rhodium.ws).
There are 3 different Delta-8,9's there:
Agroclavine, Elymoclavine and Molliclavine...
Molliclavine looks suspicious.
, C. paspali submerged cultures have ergine,
isoergine and lysergic acid N-1-hydroxyethylamide (Arcamone
et al., 1960) while sclerotia from Australia contain up to
0.005% alkaloids composed of ergine and ergonovine along
with chanoclavine and two unidentified ergoline alkaloids
(Groger et al., 1961). Elymoclavine (Kobel et al., 1964)
and agroclavine (Brar et al.,1968) have also been recorded.
there is something about Flieger M., Sedmera P., Havlíèek V., Cvak L. Stuchlík J.: 10-OH cis and 10-OH trans paspalic acid amide - new alkaloid of Claviceps paspali
Anybee got Journal of Natural products, 56  810-814 (1993)??
Now, SWIM is still only interested of paspalic acid and
wants to know how only (~95%)
it can be produced
Or is everything extracted out from C. paspali regarded
as paspalic acid???
