General description

The fluorescence property of tryptamine hydrochloride was studied in reverse micelles solution made with benzylhexadecyldimethylammonium chloride (BHDC) in benzene.


Reactant for preparation of:
  • Tryptamine derivatives as inhibitors against hepatitis B virus
  • Carbamoyl epipodophyllotoxins as potential antitumor agents
  • Anthranilic acid derivatives as CCK receptor antagonists
  • Brassinin derivatives as indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase inhibitors
  • Antispasmodic agents
  • β-carbolinium cations as new antimalarial agents


5, 25 g in poly bottle
