SWIM is performing a fairly simple A/B extraction of Trichocereus cactus alkaloids for research purposes with animals (NOT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION) and was wondering when you get to the basification step of the acidic aqueous layer containing the extracted alkaloids, would NaOH or Na2CO3 be a better base for maximizing your potential yields of the spectrum of cactus alkaloids present in some Trichocereus ssp. of cacti?
