Overview: Arecoline is an alkaloid in plant areca seeds, and its hydrobromide is commonly used in clinic [1]. White crystalline powder, odorless, bitter, toxic, and deteriorated when exposed to light. Melting point 170-171 ℃. Soluble in water and ethanol. It is obtained by the reaction of arecoline and hydrobromic acid ethanol solution. Anti-intestinal drugs, mostly used for veterinary treatment

Physical and chemical properties: this product is white or light yellow crystalline powder; It is odorless and bitter. It is easily soluble in water and ethanol, slightly soluble in chloroform and ether, and the nature of the aqueous solution is relatively stable, so it should be stored in a light-proof container.
