Chemical investigation of the famous Chinese drug “Fuzi” (Aconitum carmichaeli Debx) resulted in the isolation of a new alkaloid, fuziline, along with the known alkaloids, aconitine, hypaconitine, mesaconitine, neoline and songorine. The structure of fuziline (1) has been established by the use of carbon-13 and proton NMR spectroscopy. Subsequently this structure was confirmed by a single-crystal X-ray analysis.
