Tamoxifen is tested for solubility in chloroform at a concentration of 50mg/mL. This yields a colorless to faint yellow solution. Tamoxifen is practically insoluble in water. It has been reported to be soluble in methanol, ethanol, 2-propanol and propylene glycol. This product is also reported to be soluble in DMSO at 10mM concentration. Reference for DMSO solubility: Wong, K.R., et al., Am. J. Physiol. Heart Circ. Physiol., 277, H1403-H1409 (1999). Please also see the product information sheet (under Documents, above) for more information on the solubility of this product.
Solutions of tamoxifen are sensitive to UV light. According to C.A. O'Brian et al., [Cancer Res. 45, 2462 (1985)], tamoxifen when dissolved in DMSO can be stored at -20°C in the dark. We generally recommend making the solution fresh right before each use.
According to Sigma Quality Control Data, T5648 (tamoxifen) should be stable for at least two years if stored dessicated at 2-8°C in the dark. However, there is not an established expiration or retest date for Tamoxifen. This product is guaranteed for 1 year from shipment, if stored correctly and unopened.
