By Noah Webster.
A basic substance found in the leaves, bark, seeds, and other parts of plants, usually constituting the active principle of the crude drug. A substance of similar nature formed in animal tissues. Alkaloids are usually bitter in taste and alkaline in reaction and unite with acids to form salts. According to the usage of the U.S. and Br. Pharmacopeias, the name of an alkaloid terminates in -ina or -ine, thereby distinguishing it from a glucoside, the termination of which is-inum or -in.
