Analysis of the extracts of the ant Myrmicaria melanogaster from Brunei in the Indonesian archipelago by GC-MS and GC-IR revealed the presence of five new alkaloids, identified as (9Z)-3-propylindolizidine (1), cis- and trans-2-butyl-5-propylpyrrolidine (2 and 3, respectively), (10E)-3-butyllehmizidine (7), and (5Z,8Z,9Z)-3-butyl-5-propyl-8-hydroxyindolizidine (10a), whose structures were established by comparison with synthetic samples. In addition the monoterpene hydrocarbons beta-pinene… CONTINUE READING
