Abstract: cf. CA 60, 9099d. Catalytic hydrogenation, electroredn., and (iso-PrO)3Al redn. of lobelanine (I) were described. In the catalytic hydrogenation of I in MeOH, in glacial AcOH, or in 40% AcOH, up to 2.5 moles H were used for each mole of I; PtO2, Raney Ni, colloidal or spongy Pt, and Pd on pumice were the catalysts used. Regardless of the catalyst, the max. yield of lobeline (II) in the total mixt. of alkaloids was 46.6% at H consumption of 1.34 moles, but PtO2 gave the most rapid reaction. Electroredn. of I on Hg and Pb electrodes was not a suitable method for the prepn. of II because of low yields (∼17%). Redn. of I with (iso-PrO)3Al in iso-PrOH did not occur at 30-82°. In refluxing benzene, 80% of I was reduced to I and an unidentified isomer. The amt. of alkaloids formed in the redn. were detd. by paper chromatography.
