Abstract

Organicmoleculeshavebiologicalactivityforavarietyofstructuralfeatures,someactivitiesareassociatedwiththestructural basis of a known molecule, and others are associated with the type and orientation of additive modifications. However, acetylcholine (ACh) is the main neurotransmitter of the parasympathetic nervous system, the part of the autonomic nervous system that contracts smooth muscles, dilates blood vessels, increases body secretion, and slows the heartrate.
