Catalog Number: 0756
Alternate Names: 3-Morpholinylsydnoneimine chloride
Chemical Name: Amino-3-morpholinyl-1,2,3-oxadiazolium chloride
Biological Activity
This compound (the active product of the prodrug SIN-10, molsidomine) acts as a vasodilator and inhibitor of platelet aggregation; longer acting than nitroprusside or nitroglycerin. Decreases myocardial necrosis and reperfusion-induced endothelial dysfunction in models of myocardial ischemia-reperfusion.

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?
