Total assignment of the 1H and 13C NMR spectra of casimiroedine and its peracetylated derivative
The rare alkaloid casimiroedine and its peracetylated derivative both show complex 1H and 13C spectra with almost all signals doubled owing to slow rotation about the amide bond. Nevertheless, it is
Pharmacology of Casimiroa edulis IV. Hypotensive effects of compounds isolated from methanolic extracts in rats and guinea pigs.
TLDR
It was concluded that hypotension produced by C. edulis is due to several active components, including histamine derivatives acting on H1-receptors and casimiroedine, which is partially offset by synephrine acetonide through adrenergic mechanisms.
The Synthesis and Chemistry of Imidazole and Benzimidazole Nucleosides and Nucleotides
The scope of this review has been to examine methods that have been used for the synthesis of imidazole and benzimidazole nucleosides and nucleotides and to discuss the reactions of these compounds.
Chapter 5 The Imidazole Alkaloids
Publisher Summary Since 1953, quite a number of alkaloids containing the imidazole nucleus have been isolated that can be added to the originally small group of imidazole alkaloids. These new
