Abstract From the findings of the feeding experiments of d- and $l-nicotine-^{14}CH_{3}$ and d-nicotine to the excised tobacco leaves, it was demonstrated that demethylation of nicotine was stereospecific for the d-form in tobacco leaves. Such preferential demethylation to the enantiomer was also observed with N-methylanabasine and 1-(3'-pyridyl)-l-methylaminoethane which are analogous compounds to nicotine.
