Alkaloids ofNitraria schoberi. Structure of nitraraine

  • A. A. Ibragimov

The dehydration of nitraraine leads to the formation of 1-(2′,6′-dimethylbenzyl)-β-carboline, together with other products. Several isomeric 1-(dimethylbenzyl)-β-carbolines have been synthesized for comparison. The products of acylation, hydrogenation, and oxidation of the alkaloid nitraraine have been studied. The results obtained have shown its structure as (±)-16-hydroxymethylyohimb-16-ene.
