Identification of a new alkaloid in the seed of Datura metel Linn
D Kundu, AK Sarkar
1. Purified aqueous extract of Datura mete1 dry seeds was applied on GLC. An alkaloid was detected with high retention time which was different from atropine, hyoscine and hyoscyamine.
2. Mass spectrometry showed similar molecular weight of the identified alkaloid as in hyoscine.
3. Infra red spectroscopy formulated the chemical configuration (C20H17O2N) of the identified alkaloid.
