Alkaloids containing piperidine are collectively known as piperidines. In general piperidine based alkaloids tend to be more potent and longer lasting than their corresponding dimethylamine and pyrrolidine counterparts.
Many allylbenzenes are known to form piperidines in vivo in animals, as well as their corresponding dimethylamine and pyrrolidine counterparts. According to the current Oilahuasca Theory, this is how nutmeg and similar allylbenzene containing herbs produce their psychedelic activity.
