Lobelia chinensis is a creeping or decumbent perennial plant with slender, branched stems that root at their lower nodes. The plant forms a clump of growth 6 - 30cm tall. Although poisonous, this plant is often used in Chinese herbal medicine. It is frequently harvested from the wild and is traded in local markets.
The structure of lobechine (1) was comprehensively established with the aid of 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopic analyses.
