BOTH adrenaline and its possible precursor nor-adrenaline can be obtained from the adrenals of many animals in the different classes of vertebrates1. In the dogfish, where adrenocortical and chromaffin tissue are entirely separate, the latter contains wholly noradrenaline2. In the Amphibia, where the two tissues are intermingled, noradrenaline forms 50–69 per cent of the total catechol content in the frog2 and 35–58 per cent in the toad3. In the eutherian mammal, chromaffin tissue, formed as a… 
Distribution of Adrenaline and Noradrenaline in the Hen Adrenal Gland
TLDR
The cord of chromafnn cells embracing the cortical tissue peripherally is apparently specialized in the secretion of noradrenaline, whereas islets of Chromafnn tissue intermingling with the cortical cells themselves apparently contain predominantly adrenaline.

Distribution of Adrenaline and Noradrenaline in the Adrenal Medulla
TLDR
The presence of brightly fluorescing cell groups against a dark background of non-fluorescing medullary cells was a constant finding in formalin-fixed sections of the adrenals of most species.
Colorimetric Determination of Noradrenaline and Adrenaline
TLDR
The greater stability of noradrenaline in solution against oxidation as compared with adrenaline appears to be of practical value for example in solutions of local anaesthetics.
