The Alkaloids: Chemistry and Physiology, Volume II focuses on strychnine and morphine alkaloids.

This book discusses the elucidation of the structure of morphine, codeine, and thebaine; synthetic hydrophenanthrenes related to the morphine alkaloids; and stereochemistry of the morphine alkaloids and sinomenine. The elucidation of the constitution of sinomenine, biological effects of colchicine, chemistry of individual alkaloids, and alkaloids of gelsemium species are also elaborated. This text likewise covers the isolation of the alkaloids, phenanthrene nucleus of morphine, fission around the nitrogen atom, and synthetic hydrophenanthrenes related to the morphine alkaloids.

This volume is useful to chemists and researchers conducting work on alkaloid chemistry.
