Catalog Number: 4096
Alternate Names: CLT
Chemical Name: 1-(2-Chloro-α,α-diphenylbenzyl)imidazole
Biological Activity
Imidazole antimycotic and cytochrome P450 inhibitor. Inhibits Ca2+-activated K+ current (IC50 = 3 μM) and L-type Ca2+ current; increases the firing rate of action potentials. Exhibits antiproliferative activity in vitro and in vivo. Also an inverse agonist of the human constitutive androstane receptor (hCAR).

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?
