Alkaloids are a class of chemicals that occur often in nature all around the world. These are extremely complicated compounds and biomolecules. Alkaloids are chemicals of a highly broad family of secondary plant metabolites; alkaloids, including anticholinergic, anticancer, diuretic, antiviral, antihypertensive, antiulcer, and analgesic, have been related to a long variety of biological functions. Alkaloid salts are often soluble in water and diluted alcohols and are seldom soluble in organic solvents due to the basic nature of alkaloids, which permits salts to be produced with mineral acids or organic acids. This study focuses mostly on the taxonomy, context, and medicinal use of alkaloids.
