I'm getting into alkaloid extraction from various ethnobotanicals. It is a bit frustrating trying to extract alkaloids from ethnobotanicals without good guides out there, and I wanted to make my own techniques and experiments. However, I need to know what the basic outline is for extraction. Are there any guides or basic principles I need to know?
I'm interested in extracting for example Leonurine from Wild Dagga or Mitragyna and 7-OH-Mitragyna from Kratom.
What I was looking for was Acid-Base or Liquid-Liquid extractions.
