Chemical Arecoline

Name Arecoline
CAS Type 1 Name 3-Pyridinecarboxylic acid, 1,2,5,6-tetrahydro-1-methyl-, methyl ester
Equivalent Terms Arecaline | Arecholin | Arecholine | Arecolin | Methylarecaidin
CAS Registry Number 63-75-2
Definition An alkaloid obtained from the betel nut (Areca catechu), fruit of a palm tree. It is an agonist at both muscarinic and nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. It is used in the form of various salts as a ganglionic stimulant, a parasympathomimetic, and a vermifuge, especially in veterinary practice. It has been used as a euphoriant in the Pacific Islands.
