A Possible Cannizzaro's Reaction of Berberine In Vivo


Three alkaloids berberine, lambertine and berlambine occur simultaneously in Berberis lambertii Parker. This work deals with establishing that lambertine and berlambine are not artifacts during isolation. The author suggests that berberine has undergone Cannizzaro's reaction to produce the other two alkaloids, a reaction so far known in vitro taking place also in vivo.
