RESCINNAMINE Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertieswhite to cream powder
  • UsesRescinnamine occurs in the roots of a num ber of Rauwolfia species. Therapeutically, itis used as an antihypertensive agent.
  • brand nameModeril (Pfizer).
  • General DescriptionOdorless white to cream colored crystalline powder.
  • Air & Water ReactionsInsoluble in water.
  • Reactivity ProfileThe neat material darkens slowly on exposure to light. In solution this occurs more rapidly. .
  • Health HazardThe pharmacological properties of rescinnamine are similar to those of reserpine, butthe side effects are low. It acts as a sedativeand hypotensive. A dose of 0.25 mg/day mayproduce the effect of sleepiness in humans.Excessive doses may produce depression,nightmare, nausea, diarrhea, and hypotension.
    LD50 value, oral (rats): 1000 mg/kg
    The carcinogenicity of rescinnamine inanimals or humans is unknown.
  • Fire HazardFlash point data for RESCINNAMINE are not available. RESCINNAMINE is probably combustible.
  • Purification MethodsCrystallise it from *benzene, MeOH or aqueous Me2CO. The hydrochloride has m 232o(dec) (from MeOH) and [] D -74o (MeOH). It is an antihypertensive. [Klohs et al. J Am Chem Soc 77 2241 1955, Beilstein 25 III/IV 1323.]
