Quaternary alkaloids of the following species of Papaveraceae were studied. From Hunnemannia fumariaefolia SWEET cyclanoline, escholidine and alkaloid HF3 were isolated, from Papaver atlanticum BALL magnoflorine, from P. caucasicum MARSCH.-BIEB., P. dubium L. and P. litwinowii FEDDE ex BORNM. aporheine methohydroxide, and from P. pseudo-orientale (FEDDE) MEDW. a new alkaloid, isothebaine methohydroxide were isolated. In P. confine JORD. magnoflorine was found and in two chemotypes of P. rhoeas L. β-stylopine methohydroxide and aporheine methohydroxide could be proved.
