Hygrine is a pyrrolidine alkaloid, found mainly in coca leaves (0.2%). It was first isolated by Carl Liebermann in 1889 (along with a related compound cuscohygrine) as an alkaloid accompanying cocaine in coca. Hygrine is extracted as a thick yellow oil, having a pungent taste and odor.

hygrine was detected by many identifcal tests before knowing it's stracture. 1-it gives with nitrus acid HNO2 nigative results so they know that the nitrogen in compound exist as tertiary group. compound + HNO2 ---> -ve . 2-it gives with benzene sulphonyl chloride -ve results doesn't give a benzyl drvative . compound + phSO2Cl ---> -ve . 3-it gives with hydrogen iodid compound + HI ---> -(CH2)2NCH3 so that is mean it's contain NCH3 group. 4-it gives with dinitrobenzophenone (DNP) . compound + DNP ---> yelleow crystal so that mean it's contain cabonyl group. 5- it doesnot reduce fihling agent .

it prepared by (1,3 di bromoprobane + diethylacetate )+ then addition of Br2 under going reaction (bi nuclophilc substetution reaction SN2) + followed by addition of (methyl amine) (NH2CH3) -----> it gives hygirne.
