The Alkaloids Chemistry and Pharmacology, Volume 04

without comments

By : R.H.F Manske, H.L. Holmes

Once I had this book borrowed from a local library. It is an extensive alphabetical list of alkaloids containing a brief chemical, physical and pharmaceutical info under each alkaloid name. (Eg. melting points of the substance and its salts, solubilities, crystallisation, angles of rotation of polarised light, effects on ingestion, occurence in nature, etc.). Anyone with an interest in plant substances will find it interesting. The copy I have seen was printed in 1947 in New York, so today it may be a little out of date.

Alkaloids: Chemical and Biological Perspectives, Volume 14

without comments

By : S.W. Pelletier

Book Description:

Volume 14 of this series presents three interesting reviews of research on alkaloids. Chapter 1, by Paul L. Schiff, Jr., is a monumental effort, presenting a selective, comprehensive tabular review of research on the bisbenzylisoquinoline alkaloids, with an analysis of the respective alkaloid types. The chapter should serve as a very useful tool for the bench research scientist who is involved in the isolation and elucidation of structures of bisbenzylisoquinoline alkaloids. Moreover, the data in these tables provides the botanical distribution and occurrence (family, genus, species) of the various classes of these alkaloids. The alkaloids are also categorized by their molecular weights and structural types.
