The Alkaloids: Chemistry and Physiology, Volume VIII: The Indole Alkaloids focuses on the advances in the chemistry of indole alkaloids.
This book discusses the tryptamine and its derivatives, postulated biosyntheses of the physostigmine ring system, and source of the alkaloids. The simple lysergic acid amides, mass spectra of mitraphylline and rhynchophylline, and alkaloids of gelsemium species are also elaborated. This text likewise covers the determination of the structure of the alkaloids, stereochemistry of cinchonamine, dimeric alkaloids of calabash curare, and chemistry of the reserpine group. Other topics include the biology of ergot and short history of its active principles up to the discovery of ergotamine.
This volume is recommended for chemists and researchers interested in indole alkaloids.
