Product Details

Alternative Name:SPER/NO, (Z)-1-{N-[3-Aminopropyl]-N-[4-(3-aminopropylammonio)butyl]-amino}-diazen-1-ium-1,2-diolate
Purity:≥97% (NMR)
Appearance:White to off-white crystalline solid.
Solubility:Soluble in water, methanol or 100% ethanol.
Shipping:Blue Ice
Long Term Storage:-80°C
Use/Stability:Relatively stable in alkaline solution.
Handling:Protect from light and oxygen. Keep under inert gas. Hygroscopic.
Technical Info/Product Notes:Product dissociates to the free amine and nitric oxide in a pH dependent manner following first order kinetics. Alkaline solutions of NONOates (in 0.01M NaOH) are stable and can be stored at 0°C for 24 hours. To initiate the release of nitric oxide add alkaline solution of Spermine NONOate to excess buffer of pH 7.0 - 7.4. Relatively high concentrated solutions can be prepared for further dilution. Half life in 0.1M phosphate buffer (pH 7.4) at 37 C is t½ (min.) 39. Decomposition is nearly instantaneous at pH 5.
Regulatory Status:RUO - Research Use Only
