Excerpt from American Journal of Pharmacy, Vol. 73: Published by Authority of the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy; February, 1901 Ipecacuanha is probably, next to opium and cinchona bark, one of the most important drugs in the official materia medica. Its chemi cal history, however, has been for a long time very imperfect, and although some of its medicinal effects have been ascribed to the presence of an alkaloid, there has been hitherto considerable doubt whether that was always the case. In prosecuting an inquiry as to the amount and nature of the alkaloid in ipecacuanha to which the name emetine has been given, reference was, of course, made to the observations of previous experimenters. Instead, however, of deriv ing much assistance from the statements of their results, we found that they led to considerable uncertainty respecting the chemical identity of the alkaloid described as emetine.
