An introduction to alkaloids and their applications in pharmaceutical chemistry

Author(s):
Neha Babbar
Abstract:
Alkaloids are a group of naturally occurring chemical compounds that contain mostly basic nitrogen atoms. This group also includes some related compounds with neutral and even weakly acidic properties. Some synthetic compounds of similar structure are also termed alkaloids In addition to carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen, alkaloids may also contain oxygen, sulfur and, more rarely, other elements such as chlorine, bromine, and phosphorus. The properties and medicinal uses of alkaloids have been discussed.
