Tryptamine Chemistry / Re: Articles on ergot cultivation
« Last post by Vesp on February 22, 2017, 02:23:33 AM »
It has been suggested that some of these articles might be useful for some people. They'll stay online a couple of weeks for those who want them.

<html><body><p>Adv. Appl. Microbiol.;1969;11;211-44;W.J. Kelleher;Ergot Alkaloid Fermentations.</p></body></html> (http://www.geocities.com/botero56/AdvApplMicrobiol.1969.11.211-44.Kelleher.pdf)

Here is that paper: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-m2b1Q9ZhiBX0JaaE1EUGpPZzA/view

I didn't put it there, I just found the link to it.

You can see and read all 34 pages if you allow JavaScript from google, but I don't know how you can save the PDF. Maybe log in with a google account and then you can? I literally don't have any google anything. I don't like their spy-on-you-and-know-everything culture.

You could take a screenshot of each page and piece it together in a photo editing program and then turn that into a PDF. :P


Downloaded the pdf and uploaded it here.

Hi.
Ive foudn this article about debrominating 2-bromo-carboxylic acids, of formula RCHBrCOOH, into RCH2COOH.
Cant read it though. If anyone can link to it or put it here, it will be much appreciated -
DOI:<html><body><p>10.1070/MC1994v004n01ABEH000332</p></body></html>
Abstract -
2-Bromo-substituted carboxylic acids (RCHBrCOOH) undergo reductive debromination and form unsubstituted acids RCH2COOH.

Paper attached.

If the corresponding n,n-dimethyltryptamine were the intended target, it could serve as a precursor for psilocin, methinks, via catalytic removal of the benzyl group to give psilocin, and subsequent esterification would be a good idea, due to the instability of 4-OH tryptamines.


David E. Nichols does exactly ALL of that starting with 4-benzoyloxy-indole (and goes directly from 4-benzoyloxy-DMT -> 4-Acetoxy-DMT) here: https://www.erowid.org/archive/rhodium/pdf/nichols/nichols-psilocin.pdf

There are some ergot cultivation and related papers I posted previously (see links to the posts below).

I uploaded these other ergot pdf's here: https://www.thevespiary.org/talk/index.php?topic=14105.msg54160243#msg54160243

I openned and looked at only one of them. You'll have to forgive me if they're garbage.

The one titled "EMERGING ISSUES WITH ERGOT AND FUSARIUM MYCOTOXINS SYMPOSIUM" is a overview about ergot and ancillary topics but is lacking in some info as it is obviously a powerpoint presentation turned into a PDF file. Lots of pictures and some diagrams though. 70 slides / pages, not exclusively about ergot.

That's probably the way to go.

Though here, after all, nearly two decades after the OP, attached are the aforementioned papers.

I did happen to find this one also. Thought I'd post since the whole thing's available and I don't see it on this site already.

Extracellular metabolism of sucrose in a submerged culture of Claviceps purpurea: formation of monosaccharides and clavine alkaloids.
Appl Environ Microbiol. 1984 Oct; 48(4): 826–829.
APPLIED AND ENVIRONMENTAL MICROBIOLOGY, OCt. 1984, p. 826-829 Vol. 48, No. 4

Quote
Transformation of extracellular sucrose during cultivation of Claviceps purpurea led to the formation of mono- and oligosaccharides. Maltose was a suitable substrate for submerged fermentation of alkaloids. Fermentation in a medium with maltose was characterized by an insignificant formation of glucans, intensive sporulation, suspension growth of mycelium, and a higher formation of elymoclavine. Glucose alone yielded low levels of total alkaloids and high glucan formation; on the other hand, glucose promoted the formation of elymoclavine.

I did, by trying to find another of those above papers, find this one, which the search engine tells me has not been seen here at the Vespiary before.

Journal of General Microbiology (1974), 82,345-361
Large-scale Production of Clavine Alkaloids by CZaviceps fusiformis

Did you run those DOI numbers through sci-hub.cc? If so did you get them? Upload if you did.

I did take a peek. It seems none of the above and maybe even no Mycologia journals from all time are available online through the likes of http://gen.lib.rus.ec or sci-hub.cc which redirects to https://moscow.sci-hub.ac which is down today. :(
