Catalog Number: 0840
Chemical Name: 4-(4-Chlorophenyl)-4-hydroxy-N,N-dimethyl-α,α-diphenyl-1-piperidinebutanamide hydrochloride
Biological Activity
High affinity μ-opioid receptor agonist with peripheral selectivity (Ki values are 2, 48 and 1156 nM for μ-, δ- and κ-opioid receptors respectively). Antidiarrhoeal and antihyperalgesic agent. Also a Ca2+ channel blocker; at low micromolar concentrations it blocks broad spectrum neuronal HVA Ca2+ channels and at higher concentrations it reduces Ca2+ flux through NMDA receptor operated channels.

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?
