Catalog Number: 2322
Chemical Name: 1-(4-Chlorophenyl)-α-(2-methylpropyl)cyclobutanemethanamine hydrochloride
Biological Activity
Potently active primary amine metabolite of sibutramine (Cat. No. 2290), exhibits a similar pharmacological profile to the parent compound. Inhibits serotonin and noradrenalin reuptake more potently than sibutramine in vitro. Reduces food intake in rodents following i.c.v. administration and increases energy expenditure via thermogenesis in vivo.

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?
