Species from the section Miltantha are reviewed in the context of their contained alkaloids. Thebaine was isolated as the major alkaloid from a sample of P. fugax together with narcotine, pronuciferine, alpinigenine, O-ethylalpinigenine, amurensinine, N-methyl-crotonosine, armepavine, isocorydine and salutaridine as minor alkaloids. A second sample of P. fugax contained glaucamine and glaudine as major alkaloids with rhoeadine, oreogenine, oreodine and O-ethyl-glaucamine as minor alkaloids…

Alkaloids of Papaver fugax
Seven alkaloids have been isolated in Papaver fugax, of which cheilanthifoline, scoulerine, and reticuline have been detected in this species for the first time, while d-remeroline has been found in a plant of the Papaver genus.
Search for new natural sources of morphinans
The search for an efficient alternative medicine or a source for codeine other than opium poppy other than heroin is discussed with regards to the natural occurrence of morphinan derivatives and the biosynthetic pathways in available plants.
