The results obtained by anodic oxidation of some indole alkaloids indicate that in an acidic medium a one electron change occurs with probable hydroxyl introduction into the aromatic portion of the molecule. This reaction appears to be specific for those alkaloids containing a 6‐methoxyindole nucleus. In a neutral medium a two electron change occurs with resultant N ‐oxide formation in those alkaloids in which the nitrogen has available an unshared pair of electrons.
