Seminar on Alkaloids Prem Kumar Malviya M.Pharma


ALKALOIDS Alack, alack, is it not like that I, So early waking, what with loathsome smells, And shrieks like mandrakes' torn out of the earth That living mortals, hearing them, run mad. Romeo and Juliet ; Act IV, Scene 3


HISTORY most notorious poisons in the history of civilization . used by humanity for thousands of years. The first civilizations to use them were probably the ancient Sumerians and Egyptians it was called a vegetable alkali.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Mandrake, also named Mandragora ( Mandragora officinarum ) Most magic plant .

PowerPoint Presentation:

The name “ alkaloid ” comes from the Arabic word for ash “ al- qali ” . Belladonna is also named Devil ’ s Cherries. Term alkaloid was coined by meissner ,a German pharmacist (1819). Derosne (French chemist) isolated Narcotine (1803). . Serturner (1803) isolated morphine from opium


FACTS ABOUT MANDRAKE Already used in Egypt 3500 years ago. Grecian times considered as an extremely powerful aphrodisiac and fertility enhancer . Mentioned in the Koran , and strictly forbidden . The sponge that was given to Jesus on the cross is said to contain Mandragora juice . played a major role in witchcraft . Witches prepared mixtures of extracts of henbane ( Hyoscyamus n i ger), deadly nightshade ( Atropa belladonna ) and mandrake root, to be applied on the skin or on the genitals.

C). SOLUBILITY :- difference in solubility used as a base for their isolation and purification from non-alkaloidal bases. The following can be mentioned :- a). Both alkaloidal base and there salts are soluble in alcohol. b). Genarally bases are soluble in organic solvent and alkaloidal salts are soluble in water.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Alkaloid or its Salt Water Alocohol Ether Chloroform Atropine 460 2 25 1 Atropine sulphate 0.5 5 Insoluble Insoluble Morphine 3400 300 5000 1525 Morphine sulphate 15.5 565 Insoluble Insoluble

PowerPoint Presentation:

EXCEPTION : A).Bases soluble in water :-- Caffeine, Codeine, Ephedrine. B).Bases in-soluble or sparingly soluble in certain organic solvent :- Morphine in ether (1:5000 ) , C).Salt insoluble in water :--- Quinine sulphate quinine sulphate is only soluble in water to the extent of 1:1000 , although quinine hydrochloride is soluble 1 in less than l part of water D).Salts soluble in organic solvents :---Lobelline and Apo atropine Hcl are soluble in chloroform.


CHEMICAL PROPERTIES : 1).Salt formation :--Due to their basic character alkaloid reacts with acid to form salt -- strong bases form salt with very weak acid. -- weak bases forms salt with strong acid -- very weak bases form unstable salts.e.g caffeine , Narcotine , piperine .

PowerPoint Presentation:

2 ). amphoteric Alkaloids :-- can form salts with both acid and alkali. e. g. phenolic group :-- Morphine

PowerPoint Presentation:

Carboxylic group:-- Narciene ( a narcotic alkaloid that occurs in opium).

PowerPoint Presentation:

3). Effect of heat: Alkaloids are decomposed by heat, except Strychnine and caffeine ( sublimable ). 4). Effect of light and Oxygen : Decomposed when allowed to stand at a temperature above 70o C .for long time. sensitivity varies in degree with different alkaloids. Decomposition occur rapidly and easily when an alkaloid is in solution than when it is in dry form. Most tertiary amine alkaloids are easily transformed to the N-oxides.

PowerPoint Presentation:

5).Reaction with acids: Salt formation. Dil. acids hydrolyze Ester Alkaloids e.g. Atropine Conc. acids may cause : Dehydration : Atropine → Apo atropine Morphine → Apomorphine Demethoxylation e.g. Codeine

PowerPoint Presentation:

6. Effect of alkalis . • Weak alkalis liberate most alkaloids from their salts e.g. NH3 • Strong alkalis : such as aqueous NaOH and KOH form salts with phenolic alkaloids. • Hot alkalis : results hydrolysis of ester alkaloids e.g. atropine, cocaine and physostigmine and cleavage of lactone ring, if present, to produce the corresponding acid, e.g. pilocarpine is transformed to pilocarpic acid.

PowerPoint Presentation:

7).BASICITY OF ALKALOIDS :-- The basicity of alkaloid is due to presence of a lone pair of electron on nitrogen atom. --the basicity increased if the adjacent group is electron releasing like alkali . -- the basicity decreases if the adjacent group is electron withdrawing like carbonyl and amide group. R2-NH > R-NH2 > R3-N

PowerPoint Presentation:

Examples of electron withdrawing groups halogens (F, Cl) nitriles ( CN) carbonyls (CO). nitro groups (NO2). Examples of electron releasing groups are alkyl groups. alcohol groups. amino group.

PowerPoint Presentation:

According to basicity Alkaloids are classified into : a). Weak bases e.g. Caffeine b). Strong bases e.g. Atropine c). Amphoteric * Phenolic Alkaloids e.g. Morphine *Alkaloids with Carboxylic groups e.g. Narceine d). Neutral alkaloids e.g. Colchicine

PowerPoint Presentation:

Primary amines (R-NH2 ) e.g. Norephedrine

PowerPoint Presentation:

Secondary amines (R2-NH) e.g. Ephedrine

PowerPoint Presentation:

Tertiary amines (R3-N) e.g. Atropine

PowerPoint Presentation:

Quaternary ammonium salts (R4-N ) e.g. d -Tubocurarine Note :--Unsaturation decreases the basicity e.g. piperidine is more basic than pyridine alkaloid .

PowerPoint Presentation:

BIOSYNTHESIS OF ALKALOIDS : It is well established that alkaloids are derived from Amino acid. the most common ones are: phenylalanine , tyrosine , lysine , ornithine , histidine , tryptophan and anthranilic acid.



PowerPoint Presentation:

Any method will be a good technique, if it will accelerate : Wetting of the surface of the herb particles. 2. Permeability of cell walls. 3. Rate of dissolution of cell contents in the solvent. 4. Outward diffusion of the solution.


IDEAL PROPERTY OF SOLVENT 1. It should be non-toxic and selective. 2. It should not cause the extract to complex or dissociate. 3. It should be preservative in action. 4. It should promote rapid physiologic absorption of the extract. 5. It should be easily evaporated at low heat. NOTE:- Alcohol (Ethanol) will meet all above criteria .


SELECTION OF ALKALI 1 . use of strong alkali not recommended in case of fatty drug e.g. seeds to avoid saponification, which results in strong emulsion during extraction. 2 .Salts of strong base with mineral acid need the use of stronger alkali than those of weak base with organic acids. 3 .Ammonia is a alkali of choice as it is sufficiently basic to liberate most of alkaloid , as well as ,volatile and completely removed after extraction.


Solvents 1.Organic water-immiscible solvent :-Chloroform, Benzene , ether, ethylene chloride. Use:--they are use to extract most of alkaloid except quarternary ammonium bases . 2.Organic water-miscible solvent :--Ethyl and Methyl alcohol. Use:-extract both alkaloid and their salts. 3.Aqeous acid :--Cheap but not used because it also extract impurities like sugar, mucilage, tannins, coloring matter


STAS-OTTO METHOD The technique involve the distribution of alkaloidal bases between acid or aqueous solution and immiscible organic solvent.

Method I: The powder is treated with alkalis to liberates the free bases that can then be extracted with water immiscible organic solvents.:

Method I: The powder is treated with alkalis to liberates the free bases that can then be extracted with water immiscible organic solvents . A). stage1:-- Powdered material is moistened with water and mixed with alkali like sodium & potassium carbonate , ammonia, lime. Make a paste with water ,dry ,repowder. Concept :-- Lime(calcium hydroxide),combines with acid , tannins, and other phenolic substances and sets free alkaloids.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Powdered drug Containing alkaloidal salts Free alkaloids Total extracts Aq. Acid sol n Residual organic fraction (Alkaloidal salts) (pigments, fats & weak bases or chloroform soluble alkaloids sulphates) Residual aq. Fraction organic sol n (alkaloidal bases) crude alkaloidal mixture Moisten & render alkaline with Na 2 CO 3 , lime, NH 3 Defatted if necessary Exhaust with org. solvent like CHCl 3 , ether Conc. & shake with acid like dil. H 2 SO 4 Make alkaline extract with immisicible solvent Remove solvent Method 1

PowerPoint Presentation:

B).Stage2:-- Extract the free alkaloids by hot continous percolation with chloroform or any other organic solvents . Concept :- The free alkaloids dissolve together with other substances soluble in solvent. C).Stage3:-- Agitate the chloroform soln. with successive portion of dil.sulphuric acid separating the aqueous layer before adding the next portion of acid. Concept :- The alkaloids are converted into alkaloidal sulphates, which being soluble in water,pass into aqeous layer.

PowerPoint Presentation:

D).Stage4:-- Make the mixed aqueous liquid alkaline with ammonia, collect the precipitate that forms, wash with water and dry. Concept :- Ammonia decomposes the alkaloidal sulphates forming ammonium sulphates ,soluble in water ,and the free alkaloid which being practically insoluble in water is precipitated.

Method I I::

Method I I: The powder is extracted with water soluble organic solvents such as MeOH or EtOH which are good solvents for both salts and free bases. And the resultant extract is submitted to same process as that of method1. ADVANTAGE :-- This method requires no alkali, gives good penetration of drug ,therefore only 4 extraction may be needed , whereas method1 requires 10-12 extraction, i.e. Economical.

Method III::

Method III: The powdered material is extracted with water or aqueous alcohol containing dilute acid . Disadvatage:-- Cheap but not used because it also extract impurities like sugar, mucilage, tannins, colouring matter.




GRADIENT pH TECHNIQUES Though alkaloids are basic in nature, there are variations in the extent in the basicity of various alkaloids of the same plant. Depending on this character, the crude alkaloidal mixture is dissolved in 2% tartaric acid solution and extracted with benzene so that the first fraction contains natural and/or very weakly basic alkaloids. pH of the aqueous solution is increased gradually by 0.5 increment upto pH 9 , and extraction is carried out at each pH level with organic solvent, by this way alkaloids with different basicity are extracted. Strongly basic alkaloids are extracted at the end.


GENERAL CHEMICAL TESTS FOR ALKALOIDS PRECIPITATION REACTION : 1- Mayer's or Valser's reagent ( Potassium mercuric iodide) gives white or yellow color mostly amorphous precipitates with alkaloids,except the purine bases, ephedrine Colchicine and ricinine . Mercuric chloride 1.36 Potassium iodide 5.00 g Water to make 100 ml.

PowerPoint Presentation:

2. Wagner's reagent (Iodine- potassium iodide ) :- It produces brown or reddish- brown precipitates with all alkaloids. Iodine 1.3 g Potassium iodide 2.0 g Water to make 100 ml 3. Dragendorff's or Krauts reagent ( potassium iodide+ bithmus nitrate) :- It produces orange red precipitate which is usually amorphous. Bismuth nitrate 8.0 g Nitric acid 20.5 g Potassium iodide 27.2 g Water to 100 ml 4. Hager's reagent (picric acid):- Gives yellow crystalline precipitate.

PowerPoint Presentation:

5. Tannic acid solution : (5%w/v) .:--gives buff colored ppt. which is soluble in dil.acid or ammonia. 6. Ammonium reineckate solution : 2% solution , produces precipitates with heterocyclic nitrogen alkaloids, with quaternary and some tertiary amines .


COLOUR REACTION A). Van- Urks test: (Para-dimethyl-amino-benzaldehyde + sulphuric acid) -- (for Egot alkaloids).- gives Blue colour. B). Vitali-Morin test:-- test for solanceous alkaloids gives violet colour when treated with conc. nitric acid and alcoholic KOH. Mechanism :-- These color tests usually depend upon dehydration or oxidation of the alkaloid with a resultant characteristic color. Merits :-- a). very sensitive b). the intensity of the colour so formed is in linear proportion to the concentration of the alkaloid

. PROTO-Alkaloids: - These are alkaloids which are derived from amino acid but do not have nitrogen in a heterocyclic ring. They are also called as “Biological amine”. Examples include:- mescaline , adrenaline and ephedrine . . PSEUDO-Alkaloids: -- They do not derived from amino acid but having nitrogen in heterocyclic ring . They do not show many of the typical characters of alkaloids , but give standard qualitative test for alkaloids. e.g. steroidal alkaloids:-conessine Purine bases :-- Caffeiene

PowerPoint Presentation:

CHEMICAL CLASSIFICATION :-- According to chemical structure, two broad division may be recognized: • Non-heterocyclic alkaloids that are sometimes called ''proto alkaloids' or biological amines. • Heterocyclic alkaloids , that are sub-classified into different groups according to their ring structure.

Quantitative Determination of Alkaloids :

Quantitative Determination of Alkaloids

PowerPoint Presentation:

1.Volumetric methods : These are based on reaction of alkaloidal bases with acids (Acid-Base titration).They include: a). Aqueous titration : This is carried by either: Direct titration of the alcoholic solution of the alkaloidal residue with standard acid, or Back titration by dissolving the residue in a known amount of standard acid and back titration of residual acid against standard alkali. b). Non-aqueous titration : This method is suitable for determination of weak bases e.g. Caffeine

PowerPoint Presentation:

2. Gravimetric methods : These methods are recommended for determination of: 1- Very weak bases which can not be determined by volumetric methods e.g. caffeine and Colchicine. 2- Mixtures of alkaloids that are obtained from the same plant but differ greatly in their molecular weight e.g. Cinchona and Rauwolfia alkaloids. They can be performed by either: 1- Direct Weighing of the alkaloidal mixtures 2- Precipitation of the total alkaloids and determination of the weight of the precipitate obtained.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The major drawbacks of the gravimetric methods are: 1- They are insensitive to micro-amounts of alkaloids. 2- They could not be applied in case of thermolabile and volatile alkaloids. 3- Lipophilic impurities in the residue are calculated as alkaloids.
