Nicotine is an alkaloid that is current, including a few minor alkaloids, in tobacco and a wide selection of alternative crops. The advent of tobacco as a healing agent opposed to diversified pathologi­ cal and physiological stipulations led to the frequent publicity of individuals to nicotine, and the next attractiveness of the pleasing results of tobacco intake. Tobacco can be utilized for excitement through smoking it in pipes, cigars or cigarettes or via taking it in unsmoked shape as oral and nasal tobacco snuff. Nonsmokers are uncovered to nico­ tine via plant fabric and side-stream tobacco smoke. which means in people nicotine is usually used in the presence of a really huge number of usual compounds or their pyrolysis items, count­ ing at the direction of management. those compounds may perhaps regulate the absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion of nicotine and as a result regulate the period of its pharmacological motion. in recent times using nicotine in chewing gum and cutaneous patches has been built as an reduction to smoking cessation. The poisonous houses of nicotine make it priceless as an insecticide, which has resulted in its use in agriculture and horticulture. It has additionally lately been recog­ nized that tobacco intake will be precious within the prevention of Parkinson's sickness or in assuaging inflammatory bowel syndrome. The above observations have endured to stimulate study into the mode of motion of this really uncomplicated molecule.

2 N-ACYLATED PYRIDINE ALKALOIDS A unique class of pyridine alkaloids that has recently been studied is the acylated derivatives of the secondary amine alkaloids nomicotine, anatabine and anabasine. 2 were n-hexanoyl- and n-octanoylnomicotine (Bolt, 1972). Warfield et al. (1972) identified N'-formyl- and N'acetylnomicotine, Matsushima et ai. (1983) isolated N'-butanoylnomicotine, Miyano et ai. (1979) isolated N'-formylanatabine and N'-formylanabasine, and Matsushima et al. (1983) identified N'-(6-hydroxyoctanoyl)- and N'-(7-hydroxyoctanoyl)-nomicotine in cured tobaccos.

As quaternization can occur on either the pyridyl or pyrrolidine nitrogen at least two structural possibilities exist for nicotine. However, the delocalization of electrons by the carbonyl group in continine and 3hydroxycotinine would direct quaternization exclusively to the pyridine nitrogen. 9 CONCLUSIONS From the above overview it is clear that the metabolism of nicotine is extremely complex and shares with few other xenobiotics the number and diversity of structure of the known metabolites.
