Otto Snow - Amphetamine Syntheses: Overview & Reference Guide For Professionals (Revised Industrial Edition 2002)

Amphetamine Syntheses (1998) was a global blockbuster. The new and improved Industrial edition is now available, jam packed with state of the art drug chemistry, hot new formulas written by some of the greatest minds of the 20th century. Small town mom and pop labs across America to the multi-ton labs of global organized crime, how they make drugs and what they use to make them.

Otto has put together the most explicit syntheses on the bulk production of psychedelic amphetamines, precursors and reductions. MDA, MDMA (XTC), DOB, TMA, PMA, MDEA (Eve), DOM (STP) & other popular stimulants, eg. methylcathinone, phenetermine, aminorex, ephedrine. It is easy reading yet, explicit, hardcore, psychedelic amphetamine chemistry. eg. Methylcathinone and other psycho-stimulants from non-list chemicals. Production of precursors from fertilizer, spices, barks, seeds and oils. Expanded metal & electrolytic reductions. Bulk production of reduction & list chemicals from solvents & common chemicals at the local hardware store. Hundreds of reactions are described, current drug laws and list chemicals. 400+ references. UV Laminated, index.

Otto Snow - LSD (2003)

At age 15, Otto developed hemi-paraesthesic migraine headaches. These cluster migraines resemble a stroke. He was given narcotics, barbiturates and ergot alkaloids. The drugs were making him ill. He learned of a new medication that might help. The drug was LSD-25 and it worked.

His physicians would not prescribe LSD so Otto entered the world of LSD. Several laboratories provided him and other patients with the medication. Included are comments and research from the greatest scientists of the twentieth century. Personal satori experiences. At nineteen, Otto discontinued his exploration of LSD.

LSD is the most comprehensive book ever written on the synthesis of LSD. Otto includes the reactions and the chemistry behind the reactions. Many simplified reactions (e.g. diethylamine from vodka, lysergic acid directly from Claviceps sugar culture, coupling agents from scratch). Extractions translated to English.

LSD is written by someone who has been there and knows the subject/chemistry first hand. LSD is as popular today as it was in the 1970s and 1960s. For many it is a party drug, for others it is a medication. The Decade of the Brain heralded in a new interest in psychedelics and their medical application.

The book is illustrated by Tulasne, Chase, Gill and others. LSD is packed with chemistry for future generations of neurochemists and explorers. 275+ references. UV laminated.

Otto Snow - THC & Tropacocaine (2004)

THC is a new miracle medication, used to treat sleep disorders allergies, inflammatory diseases, auto immune disorders, migraines, addictions, post traumatic stress disorder, anorexia, etc.

Syntheses of THC and chemical analogs are described. Human testing are also included. The extraction of THC (eg. 40%, 70% and 92% THC Hash Oil) from cannabis is detailed. Isomerisation: a quick route from cannabidiol.

The discovery of its endogenous ligand, anandamide (a fatty acid amide) has revolutionized the investigation of this new neurotransmitter system. Anandamides have been used in the treatment of insomnia, allergies and post traumatic stress disorder yet remain undeveloped. Anandamides will replaced THC and marijuana because of ease of synthesis; preparation from commonly available grocery store oils (eg. olive oil). Multiple reactions are explained.

Tropacocaine was discovered as a trace alkaloid in Coca leaves from Java. It is longer acting and less toxic than cocaine.

Tropacocaine is prepared from atropine obtained from nightshade plants. The synthesis of tropacocaine from Datura (eg. nightshade) is described and referenced. Reactions have been translated into English. Millions of Americans are addicted to cocaine and crack, yet tropacocaine has never been studied to assess its value as a replacement medication. 400+ refs. Color cover. Laminated.

Otto Snow - Love Drugs (2005)

Love Drugs is a sequel to Amphetamine Syntheses (2002) Expanded coverage of the synthesis of MDMA and other empathogens and stimulants.

Expanding the chemistry of empathogens. MDMA from scratch. Small and large scale production is described in detail. Hot new formulas abound. Piperonyl-acetone from both safrol and isosafrol. Multiple reduction methods using common and locally available metals.

MDA appeared in the 1960s and has been called the original love drug. It was the first in a series of molecules that produce empathy in humans. MDMA was appeared sporadically in the 1970s. MDEA followed ecstasy in the 1980s.

These molecules were controlled as they were being abused. Substituted phenyl amino-butanes have reduced abuse potential and greater safety margins. Yet, in 20 years, the development of safer entactogens has not taken place.

Love Drugs gives the reader a look at the most innovative chemistry for entactogen production. Explicit descriptions on safrol, apiol, asarone, dimethoxyallybenzene, etc. extraction from multiple botanical sources. Reviews of conventional syntheses with tips from the original chemists. Love Drugs is an inside look into the chemistry of the entactogens, present and future. Reactions have been translated into English. Millions across the globe have used MDMA as a therapeutic tool.

There is an infinite number of new entactogens on the horizon. 150+ references. Color cover. UV Laminated.



I was really excited to find this, but it doesn't look like I'll be able to download it. Does anyone have this that would be willing to seed?


thanks much!

These classics need to stay part of the ConCen library, no?
