Catalog Number: 5320
Alternate Names: Carbon monoxide releasing molecule 3
Chemical Name: Tricarbonylchloro(glycinato)ruthenium
Biological Activity
Water-soluble carbon monoxide-releasing molecule. Suppresses thrombin-induced nitrite release in BV-2 microglia. Protects isolated rats hearts from reperfusion damage in vitro and is cardioprotective in a rat myocardial infarction model in vivo. Also prolongs survival of transplanted hearts in mice. Exhibits anti-inflammatory and vasorelaxant effects.

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?
