APPROXEMATE MOLECULAR ELECTROSTATIC POTENTIALS OF PROTONATED MESCALINE ANALOGUES
The molecular electrostatic potential maps of five protonated phenylethylamines have been calculated and compared with that of protonated serotonin. Protonation leads to a very similar potential área around the amine chain in all the molecules suggesting that this región may serve for the orientation and / or the interaction with the serotonergic receptor. It was not possible to obtain a qualitative relation between hallucinogenic potency and electrostatic potential valúes.
