The piperidine ring is a structural fragment of many alkaloids, such as cocaine, lobeline, coniine, and pelletierine. Piperidine was first obtained from piperine, an alkaloid found in black pepper. It is prepared by reduction of pyridine and is used as a catalyst in condensation reactions. Piperidine derivatives are used as medicinal preparations, especially as local anesthetics and spasmolytics.
