  author={G. M. Badger and A. F. Beecham},
IN the course of a comprehensive study of the alkaloids in Australian Leguminosæ, the examination of Petalostyles labicheoides was undertaken. This erect and bushy shrub grows to a height of several feet, and is found mainly in northern New South Wales and in Queensland. Alkaloids were detected in this plant in the course of the extensive field tests carried out by Mr. L. J. Webb1, who kindly arranged for a quantity of the plant to be supplied for more intensive investigation. 
Recent Advances in the Synthesis of β-Carboline Alkaloids
This review describes the recent developments in the synthesis of β-carboline alkaloids and closely related derivatives through selected examples from the last 5 years, focusing on the key steps with improved procedures and synthetic approaches.
Nitropyridoindoles—Formation, characterization and mutagenicity
Nitration of pyridoindoles (β‐carbolines) was carried out using different nitration methods and structural assignments of these nitro compounds were made using different spectroscopic techniques. The
