Not all research chemicals are created equal. Some can boast of having higher quality than others. This will depend on the percentage composition of a research chemical.
What would be the ideal percentage composition of a research chemical? It depends on what one is looking for. There are many research chemicals and they provide different actions to the body. For example, some act as stimulants while others give the sedative effects.
Chemists adjust or tweak the composition of these chemicals to produce the desired effects. As an illustration, the 5-HT2A receptor located in the brain plays a vital role in the processing of sensory information and emotions of a person. LSD and other hallucinogenic drugs can actually activate this receptor. Hence, the person feels happy or high afterwards.
When the research chemicals are tweaked, the same composition of LSD that is responsible for that particularly feel-good moment of the person could be imitated. Hence, with research chemicals, one can get “high” without being illegal.
This process can be reversed, too. Instead of the “high” effect, one can also feel relaxed and calm just by adjusting the percent composition of the known drugs.
Chemists can determine the atomic composition of any chemical compounds, including that of research chemicals, by these formulas: molecular, empirical and structural. One can easily describe the percent composition of a chemical through examining the percent composition of that particular compound by mass.
All these calculations though are not based on actual activities in the brain as research chemicals are not to be ingested or consumed by any human being.
