Catalog Number: 2195
Chemical Name: α-(4-Chlorophenyl)-4-[(4-fluorophenyl)methyl]-1-piperidineethanol
Biological Activity
Non-competitive NMDA receptor antagonist that acts at the polyamine modulatory site. Selective for NR2B- over NR2A- and NR2C-containing receptors (IC50 values are 1, > 100 and > 100 μM respectively). Also σ1 ligand (Ki = 0.013 μM). Antagonizes neuronal voltage-gated Ca2+ channels and selectively inhibits the rapid component of the delayed rectifier K+ current (IKr). Neuroprotective.

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?
