Catalog Number: 0668
Chemical Name: 2-Amino-5-(2-aminoethyl)-4-methylthiazole dihydrobromide
Biological Activity
Highly selective H2 agonist, slightly more potent than histamine itself. Only a weak antagonist at H3 and has no activity at H1 receptors. Induces vasodilation of cerebral arteries and decreases myogenic tone in vitro.

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?
