Gentamicin sulphate employed in therapeutics consists of a mixture of three major aminoglycoside components, the gentamicins C1, C1a and C2. In the electron impact mass spectra of these components weak parent ions may be observed but they are of no diagnostic value in the commercial mixture. Chemical ionization and field desorption spectra of individual(More)
The synthesis of four 3-substituted 6-tert-butyl-1,2,3,4,5,6-hexahydro-2,6-methano-3-benzazocines is described. Derivatives with N-Me or N-phenethyl substituents do not differ significantly in their antinociceptive properties from compounds bearing 6-H or 6-Me; however, they are less active than 6-Ph analogues.
The synthesis of 4-alkyl-, 4-aralkyl-, and 4-alkenyl-1,2,3,4,5,6-hexahydro-2,6-methano-3-benzazocines is described together with some 4,4-disubstituted and 8-hydroxy derivatives. Evidence of the stereochemistry of the 4-substituent was from 1H and 13C NMR. In the 4-methyl series the equatorial epimer 1b has a higher analgesic (hot-plate) potency than 1a,(More)
