Alternate Names: Phorbol 12-phenylacetate 13-acetate 20-homovanillate
Chemical Name: [(1aR,1bS,4aR,7aS,7bS,8R,9R,9aS)-9a(acetyloxy)-1a,1b,4,4a,5,7a,7b,8,9,9a-decahydro-4a,7b-dihydroxy-1,1,6,8-tetramethyl-5-oxo-9-[phenylacetyl)oxy]-1H-cyclopropa[3,4]benz[1,2-e]azulen-3-yl]methyl ester benzeneacetic acid
Biological Activity
Non-pungent vanilloid TRPV1 (VR1) receptor agonist (Ki = 3.1 μM) that displays non-cooperative binding. Induces apoptosis via a non-VR1 mechanism in Jurkat cells and causes vasoconstriction in vivo.

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?
