Catalog Number: 4612
Chemical Name: Cyclohexylcarbamic acid 3'-(Aminocarbonyl)-[1,1'-biphenyl]-3-yl ester
Biological Activity
Potent and selective fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) inhibitor (IC50 values are 3 and 5 nM in human liver and rat brain, respectively). Exhibits no significant inhibitory activity against a variety of receptors, ion channels and enzymes, including human cannabinoid receptors and rat monoacylglycerol lipase. Displays antiallodynic and antihyperalgesic activity in an inflammatory pain model.

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?
