Abstract

11-Oxo-Δ8-tetrahydrocannabinol was oxidized to Δ8-tetrahydrocannabinol-11-oic acid by mouse hepatic microsomes. The oxygenation mechanism in the reaction was confirmed by the incorporation of oxygen-18 from molecular oxygen into Δ8-tetrahydrocannabinol-11-oic acid. The oxygenation of aldehyde to carboxylic acid represents a novel mechanism in biological oxidation of aldehyde to carboxylic acid.
