Voacangine (12-methoxyibogamine-18-carboxylic acid methyl ester) is a tryptamine derivative found predominantly in the rootbark of the Voacanga africana tree, as well as in other plants such as Tabernanthe iboga, Tabernaemontana africana, Trachelospermum jasminoides and Ervatamia yunnanensis.[1][2][3][4] It is an iboga alkaloid which commonly serves as a precursor for the semi-synthesis of ibogaine.[5] It has also been demonstrated in animals to have similar anti-addictive properties to ibogaine itself.[6]
