Abstract : Recent phytochemical studies have shown that the seeds of several members of the Convolvulaceae family, in particular certain Rivea, Ipomoea, and Argyreia species contain significant amounts of ergoline alkaloids. The isolation and structural determination is reported of a new hexahydroindolizine alkaloid from the seeds of Ipomoea alba L. (Moonflowers), the first time indolizines have been isolated from Ipomoea species. (Author)
