1) At the beginning of vegetation, the total alkaloids in the epigeal part ofVeratrum lobelianum is 2.5% of the weight of the dry raw material, and at the end of vegetation, 0.036%.

2) The new alkaloids veralosine, veralosinine, and veralosidine have been isolated from the epigeal part of the plant.

3) On the basis of a study of chemical properties, IR, UV, NMR, and mass spectra, and also its conversion into tetrahydrosolasodine, structure and configuration I has been proposed as the most probable for veralosidine.
