Evodiamine is a yellow flaky crystal with a melting point of 278°C. It is soluble in acetone, slightly soluble in ethanol, ether, and chloroform, and almost insoluble in water, petroleum ether, and benzene. It is weakly alkaline and does not easily form salt. Evodiamine has been biosynthesized. Evodiamine has pharmacological effects such as analgesia, lowering blood pressure, and increased body temperature, and can be used as a diuretic and sweating agent.
Evodiamine (EVO) is a major alkaloid compound extracted from the dry unripened fruit Evodiae fructus (Evodia rutaecarpa Benth., Rutaceae). EVO has a variety of pharmacological activities, such as anti-obesity, anti-allergenic, analgesic, anti-tumor, anti-ulcerogenic, and neuroprotective activities.
