Catalog Number: 3848
Chemical Name: 9α,13α,14α -7,8-Didehydro-4-hydroxy-3,7-dimethoxy-17-methylmorphinan-6-one hydrochloride
Biological Activity
Natural anti-inflammatory morphinan analog. Causes degranulation of mast cells in mammalian tissues to release histamine and suppresses production of proinflammatory cytokines. Also displays antinociceptive activity, possibly through activation of the μ-opioid receptor. Stimulates short-term renewal of human embryonic stem cells (ESCs) in vitro.

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?
