Have you pulled the Merck Index off the shelf?    In my 12th edition,
item 4922, there are references to it's source as a natural product,
structure ellucidation, synthesis, pharmacology, etc.   Takes about 1
minute to read, then you decide which references are significant to your
project and track them down.    Tom McCloud
