This compound belongs to the class of organic compounds known as homoaporphines. These are alkaloids derived from phenethylisoquinoline precursors by direct intramolecular oxidative coupling. They incorporate a nucleus A and are always pentaoxygenated at C- 1, -2, - 10, - 11, and - 12. The nitrogen function in ring B is usually N-methylated, but it may also be secondary.
