The root bark of Tabernanthe iboga contains ibogaine as its predominant alkaloid and has been an important source of it. Ibogaine is used experimentally to interrupt drug addiction and allow therapeutic intervention, but is currently unaffordable to doctors in less economically developed countries. To meet this need, an extraction of alkaloids from T. iboga root bark was optimized and simplified to use only diluted vinegar and ammonia, and was successfully applied to related alkaloids from… Expand
Quantitative Evaluation of a Mexican and a Ghanaian Tabernaemontana Species as Alternatives to Voacanga africana for the Production of Antiaddictive Ibogan Type Alkaloids
TLDR
The results suggest that T. crassa could be used to produce conopharyngine and ibogaline, two compounds with the same basic skeletal structure and possibly similar antiaddictive properties as ibogaine. Expand
Metabolite Profiling of Anti‐Addictive Alkaloids from Four Mexican Tabernaemontana Species and the Entheogenic African Shrub Tabernanthe iboga (Apocynaceae)
TLDR
Comparisons of the alkaloid profiles of the root and stem barks of four Mexican Tabernaemontana species with the root bark of the entheogenic African shrub Tabernanthe iboga illustrate the phytochemical proximity between both genera and confirm previous suggestions that MexicanTabernaenana species are viable sources of anti‐addictive compounds. Expand
Chemistry and biology of the genus Voacanga
TLDR
An exhaustive survey of the literature revealed that indole alkaoids and steroids constitute the major classes of phytoconstituents of this genus. Expand
Quantification of Anti‐Addictive Alkaloids Ibogaine and Voacangine in In Vivo‐ and In Vitro‐Grown Plants of Two Mexican Tabernaemontana Species
TLDR
It was concluded that T. alba and T. arborea are potentially viable sources of ibogaine and voacangine, and that these MIAs can be produced through somatic embryogenesis and whole plant regeneration of T.Alba. Expand
Extraction and Conversion Studies of the Antiaddictive Alkaloids Coronaridine, Ibogamine, Voacangine, and Ibogaine from Two Mexican Tabernaemontana Species (Apocynaceae)
TLDR
The findings facilitate and improve both the qualitative and quantitative analysis of CIVI‐complex‐containing plant material, as well as outlining a viable method for the bulk production of these scientifically and pharmaceutically important substances from Mexican Tabernaemontana species. Expand
Distribution of ibogaine and noribogaine in a man following a poisoning involving root bark of the Tabernanthe iboga shrub.
TLDR
The tissue distribution of ibogaine and noribogaine, the main metabolite of ibogsaine, in a 48-year-old Caucasian male found dead at his home after a poisoning involving the ingestion of root bark from the shrub Tabernanthe iboga is reported. Expand
[Chemical and DNA analyses for the products of a psychoactive plant, Voacanga africana].
TLDR
A simultaneous analytical method was developed using LC/MS for the voacanga alkaloids including ibogaine and tabersonine in the commercial products of V. africana to investigate the trend of such a non-controlled psychotropic plant of abuse. Expand
Ibogaine, an anti-addictive drug: pharmacology and time to go further in development. A narrative review
Ibogaine is an Índole alkaloid derived from the bark of the root of the African shrub Tabernanlhe iboga. Psychoactive properties of ibogaine have been known for decades. More recently, based onExpand

TLDR
Ibogaine, an alkaloid with psychotropic effects at doses of 200-300 mg and above, was taken by seven individuals who were addicted to opiates and may serve as a model for the development of improved agents for the treatment of substance abuse in the future. Expand
