Catalog Number: 4798
Chemical Name: (+)-(S)-N-Methyl-3-(1-naphthyloxy)-3-(2-thienyl)propanamine hydrochloride
Biological Activity
High affinity, competitive 5-HT and noradrenaline (NA) re-uptake inhibitor (Ki values are 8.5 and 45 nM for 5-HT and NA reuptake respectively in cortical synaptosomes; IC50 values are 28 and 46 nM for 5-HT and NA reuptake respectively in rat hippocampal slices). Also blocks dopamine reuptake (Ki = 300 nM in striatal synaptosomes). Exhibits antidepressant and anxiolytic effects. Orally bioavailable.

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?
