Product nameDibucaine hydrochloride, Local anesthetic
- 2-Butoxy-N-(2-diethylaminoethyl)-4-quinolinecarboxamide hydrochloride
- 2-Butoxy-N-(2-diethylaminoethyl)cinchoninamide Hydrochloride
- 2-Butoxy-N-[2-(diethylamino)ethyl]-4-quinolinecarboxamide Hydrochloride
Potent and toxic long-acting local anesthetic. Blocks both the initiation and conduction of nerve impulses by decreasing the neuronal membrane's permeability to sodium ions. This reversibly stabilizes the membrane and inhibits depolarization, resulting in the failure of a propagated action potential and subsequent conduction blockade.
Chemical name2-Butoxy-N-[2-(diethylamino)ethyl]-4-quinolinecarboxamide hydrochloride
Storage instructionsStore at -20°C. Store under desiccating conditions. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
Solubility overviewSoluble in DMSO to 100 mM, in water to 100 mM and in ethanol to 100 mM
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
