Scientists Solve the Crystal Structure of the Freebase of 5-MeO-DALT

This crystal structure of 5-MeO-DALT is essential to understanding its physical properties and for studying its activity at receptors by using modeling studies.

April 2020

A team of scientists from CaaMTech and the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth has reported the synthesis of the freebase form of 5-MeO-DALT (5-methoxy-N,N-diallyltryptamine).In the April 2020 study published in the journal IUCrData, the authors describe the crystal structure of 5-MeO-DALT (Figure 1) as follows:

The indole unit is nearly planar with a deviation from planarity of 0.015 A°. The methoxy group is in the same plane, with the indole and methoxy group showing an r.m.s. deviation of only 0.025 A°. The ethylamine group is turned significantly from the indole plane…
