The first successful investigation of Kirkwood's quest for the de novo origin of heterocyclic systems of alkaloids from carbon-14 labelled acyclic precursors was an experiment to test whether an N[C.sub.4] chain derived from the amino acid ornithine served as the precursor of the [C.sub.4]N ring system of the alkaloid tropine. This work was designed and carried out by Edward Leete and Ian Spenser, post-doctoral fellows in Leo Marion's laboratory.
