1. The polarographic behavior of seven alkaloids fromPeganum harmala have been investigated. The products of the electrode reaction in the reduction of vasicinone and deoxyvasicinone are the corresponding carbinols, and in the reduction of harmine the product is dihydroharmine.

2. The possibility has been shown of using the polarographic method for studying the oxidation of peganine and deoxypeganine.
