Catalog Number: 3527
Chemical Name: 2,3-Dihydro-5-methyl-N-[6-[(2-methyl-3-pyridinyl)oxy]-3-pyridinyl]-6-(trifluoromethyl)-1H-Indole-1-carboxamide dihydrochloride
Biological Activity
Selective 5-HT2C inverse agonist (pKb = 9.8). Displays selectivity over other 5-HT2 subtypes (pKi values are 6.8, 7.0 and 9.0 for 5-HT2A, 5-HT2B and 5-HT2C respectively); also exhibits >100-fold selectivity over 50 other receptors, ion channels and enzymes. Displays anxiolytic activity in rat models.

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?
