What is Olivetol(500-66-3)?

Olivetol is a naturally occurring organic compound. It is found in certain species of lichens and can be readily extracted. 5-Pentylresorcinol is also produced by a number of insects, either as a pheromone, repellent or antiseptic. The cannabis plant internally produces the related substance olivetolic acid (OLA), which was hypothesized that the plant in turn utilizes to biosynthesize the psychoactive product tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

Olivetol was used as a template molecule in the synthesis of molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP). It was also used as an inhibitor of (S)-mephenytoin 4′-hydroxylase activity of recombinant CYP2C19.

Olivetol is used in various methods to produce synthetic analogs of THC.full citation needed] One such method is a condensation reaction of olivetol and pulegone. In PiHKAL, Alexander Shulgin reports a cruder method of producing the same product by bringing to reaction olivetol and the essential oil of orange in the presence of phosphoryl chloride.
