Isopropyl (IPLA), N-methyl-N-isopropyl (MIPLA), N-ethyl-N-isopropyl (EIPLA), and N,N-diisopropyl (DIPLA) lysergamides were evaluated for lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD)-like activity. In rats trained to discriminate 0.08 mg/kg LSD tartrate from saline, each of the subject compounds completely substituted, with an ED50 two to three times larger than that of(More)
The (R)- and (S)-2-butylamides of d-lysergic acid were prepared and evaluated in behavioral and biochemical assays of 5-HT2 agonist activity. In rats trained to discriminate 0.08 mg/kg LSD tartrate from saline, both isomers completely substituted for the training stimulus. Similarly, both isomers were found to possess very high affinity in displacing(More)
Functonalty for Unstructured Meshes and Varables One of the important and powerful functions in the UDM library is the management of unstructured meshes and variables. The library supports a broad range of unstructured meshes, which include meshes with fixed shapes, arbitrary polygons, and arbitrary polyhedrons. A mesh element may be a zone, or face, or(More)
Molecular mechanics and quantum mechanics were used to study the preferred conformations, electron densities and frontier orbitals of d-LSD and their analogs with the isopropyl amide group, compounds with reported activity over the serotonin receptor. Electron densities and frontier orbitals for isopropyl analogs were similar to d-LSD, so these properties(More)
