Some tropolonic alkaloids have been investigated by circular dichroic (CD) spectroscopy in dependence on pH. Their pKa values in water-ethanol mixture (1:1) are given. Molar circular dichroism values ( δ ε ) are reported for all the measured alkaloids. The pH-depending changes in CD spectra are observed in demethylcolchicines and colchiceines. In the former they are associated with the ionization of phenolic groups in aromatic ring A, and in t h e latter with conformational changes of tropolonic rine C due to ionization of hydroxyl group at C-10.
