Abstract

When the tricyclic moiety of himbacine is replaced with a dihydroanthracene nucleaus, an increase in affinity at both M1 and M2 receptors subtypes is observed. Other modifications to the himbacine skeleton were examined and the new structures tested for potency and selectivity at M1 and M2 sites.
