An album released today by Dead Sara, titled Ain't It Tragic, has a chemical structure on the album cover. Here's a close-up of that structure:
As the structure is partially obscured, it's difficult to identify what molecule might be depicted. However, I was able to identify some features that may be useful:
As an undergraduate chemistry student, I haven't encountered any structures similar enough to this to give me an idea of what I need to be looking for. Here are the things I've been able to establish so far:
- One aromatic ring with a hydroxyl group
- Two rings fused to the aromatic ring, one of which is an ether ring and the other of which has a tricyclic structure (bridge carbon marked #16)
- Another fused ring with two bridge carbons (#8 and #17)
- A methyl ether extending from this ring
- A cyclopropyl group connected in some way to the main chain
- The structure has at least 26 carbons: the 24 numbered carbons and two carbons in the lower right that are part of side chains.
What molecule is this?
