Sulfapyridine, USP is a first generation sulfonamide discovered in 1937 by L Whitby (May & Baker) and originally named M&B693. Sulfapyridine has anti-inflammatory properties and can be used in immunodeficiency research. It can also be used in oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) where it scavenges peroxyl radicals. It is practically insoluble in water with water solubility being highly pH-dependent. Formulations with sodium have similar potency and improved water solubility.
We also offer:
- Sulfapyridine Sodium (S106)
