On the basis of IR, PMR, and mass spectra and chemical transformations, the alkaloid kesselringine isolated from the epigeal parts ofColchicum kesselringii Rgl. has been shown to have the structure of 2,11-dihydroxy-12-methoxyhexahydro-1,12-epoxyhomoproaporphine with the R absolute configuration at the C6a atom.
