The preferential conformation of tetrahydroprotoberberines is easily assignable by comparison of the chemical shift of C(6) in carbon-13 nmr spectroscopy. It is possible, furthermore, to distinguish the position of substituents in 9,10- and 10,11-substituted tetrahydroprotoberberines by the difference in chemical shift of C(8).
