The chemistry of vomicine is so closely associated and inter-related with that of strychnine and brucine that is impossible to divorce the chemistry of the former from that of the latter. For this reason, it is the opinion of the author that the most direct route to a knowledge of the chemistry of vomicine is to acquire a knowledge of the more important reactions that have been applied to the more thoroughly studied strychnine and brucine and to use this in the interpretation of the analogous reactions when applied to vomicine.
