Catalog Number: 3017
Chemical Name: 3-[2-(Dimethylamino)ethyl]-1-methylindol-4-ol
Biological Activity
Potent and selective 5-HT2C agonist (IC50 values are 12 and 633 nM for 5-HT2C and 5-HT2A receptors respectively). Displays high affinity for the 5-HT2B receptor (Ki = 38 nM) but acts as an inverse agonist. Active in vivo; inhibits scratching in a mouse model of OCD.

Molarity Calculator
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution

The molarity calculator is based on the following equation:

Mass (g) = Concentration (mol/L) x Volume (L) x Molecular Weight (g/mol)
An example of a molarity calculation using the molarity calculator:
What is the mass of compound required to make a 10 mM stock solution in 10 ml of water given that the molecular weight of the compound is 197.13 g/mol?
