“Native Fluorescence and Hallucinogenic Potency of Some Amphetamines”.
Experientia. 1971 Jan 06;27(1):62-3.
The native fluorescence of a molecule is a complex function of its quantum chemical properties that may include the energy of its π electrons. SNYDER and MERRILL
I, and KANG and GREEN e have reported that the HMO energy of methoxylated amphetamines correlates positively with theft hallucinogenic potency. We have,
therefore, measured the native fluorescence, at maximum activation and emission frequencies, of a number of amphetamines to see if there was any correlation with
their hallucinogenic potency (as measured by SHULGIN et al)). This work was carried out independently in Iowa and Edinburgh.
