Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The absolute configuration of [(R)-1-phenyl-2-pentyl]-propylammonium chloride, C14H24N+.Cl-, has been determined. The compound is a memory enhancer. Since the pharmacological effect of the related compound selegiline is highly dependent upon its configuration, the title compound may be expected to behave in a similar manner.
