Tetrahydronorharmane (Tetrahydro-β-carboline), a physiologically occurring compound of indole metabolism


In the present paper a sensitive method is described to measure tetrahydronorharmane (THN) in the urine of man and rats as well as in the forebrain of rats. The compound is extracted into diethyl ether, separated by thin layer chromatography (TLC), acetylated with radiolabelled acetic anhydride and further isolated by two-dimensional TLC development.
