Our D-LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) molecular model shows the psychoactive stereoisomer (vs L-LSD) which has structural similarities to neurotransmitters such as serotonin; only $54.95.
You can build this exact model yourself using our 3D organic molecule model builder. Simply choose a model style, enter the compound name & then press "Build & Show Purchase Options". The first results are the parts you add to the shopping cart. Checkout & you're ready to save on the cost of assembly.
Is it true that the Beatles wrote a song about LSD?
LSD is a strong hallucinogen. A rough form, ergotamine, which can occur in stored rye grain, is believed to have been the cause of the odd behaviour which triggered the Salem witch trials. LSD is also a very good example of the importance of stereoisomerism. The mirror image, (L-LSD) of the active form does not induce hallucinations.
LSD is also known as lysergide, a diethylamide derivative of lysergic acid. It belongs to a group of compounds known as indole alkylamines or substituted tryptamines like psilocin which is found in magic mushrooms. LSD can be synthesized via several chemical pathways with ergotamine tartrate as a precursor which can be extracted from the ergot fungus (Claviceps purpurea)
