Catalog Number: 2685
Alternate Names: BM 14190
Chemical Name: 1-(9H-Carbazol-4-yloxy)-3-[[2-(2-methoxyphenoxy)ethyl]amino]-2-propanol
Biological Activity
Potent β-adrenoceptor and α1-adrenoceptor antagonist (Ki values are 0.81, 0.96 and 2.2 nM for β1-, β2- and α1-adrenoceptors respectively) that displays antihypertensive and peripheral vasodilatory activity. Blocks cardiac inward-rectifier K+ (KIR) channels, voltage-dependent Ca2+ channels and exhibits antioxidant properties at higher concentrations.

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?
