Tropolisine was a psychotropic compound known for its hallucinogenic effects. Normally found in certain flowering plants, each tropolisine atom contained a stray neutron. Once it started to break down in a humanoid's bloodstream it released an undetectable toxin.

In 2151, while exploring an uncharted M-class planet later named Archer IV, the crew of Enterprise became affected by tropolisine that was blown down from the mountains during a windstorm. It was discovered by Dr. Phlox that inaprovaline, combined with being removed from the pollen-saturated environment would allow the effects of tropolisine to dissipate. (ENT: "Strange New World")

By the early 23rd century, a permanent cure for the hallucinogenic effects of tropolisine had been found, allowing Humans to settle the planet.

This information was referenced in Archer's biography found in the Starfleet database, which was discovered aboard the USS Defiant in "In a Mirror, Darkly, Part II"
