Catalog Number: 4072
Chemical Name: 2-[[4-[(2-Fluorophenyl)methyl]-1-piperidinyl]methyl]-1H-benzimidazol-6-ol dihydrochloride
Biological Activity
Highly potent NR2B-selective NMDA receptor antagonist (Ki = 0.8 nM); blocks NR2B-mediated calcium influx in Ltk cells (Ki = 9.7 nM). Selective for NR2B subunit over α1-adrenergic receptors and hERG channels (IC50 values are 730 nM and 2900 nM respectively). Displays efficacy in the rat carrageenan-induced mechanical hyperalgesia assay.

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?
