Properties: Prismatic crystals, practically tasteless, mp 145-147°. Practically insol in water. One gram dissolves in about 3 liters of water. Sol in methanol, hot ethanol, ether, chloroform, acetone, benzene, aq solns of alkali hydroxides, but not carbonates.
Melting point: mp 145-147°
Derivative Type: Sodium salt
CAS Registry Number: 50-09-9
Additional Names: Hexobarbital soluble
Trademarks: Cyclonal Sodium; Dorico Soluble; Evipal Sodium (Winthrop); Evipan Sodium (Bayer); Hexanastab; Hexenal; Methexenyl Sodium; Noctivane Sodium; Narcosan Soluble; Privenal
Molecular Formula: C12H15N2NaO3
Molecular Weight: 258.25
Percent Composition: C 55.81%, H 5.85%, N 10.85%, Na 8.90%, O 18.59%
Properties: White, bitter, very hygroscopic powder. Very sol in water, freely sol in alcohol, methanol, acetone. Practically insol in chloroform, ether, benzene. A soln in water absorbs carbon dioxide from the air, causing precipitation of the insol free acid. Aq and alcoholic solns are alkaline to litmus and phenolphthalein. The pH of a 10% w/v soln of hexobarbital soluble is about 11.5.
NOTE: This is a controlled substance (depressant): 21 CFR, 1308.13.
Therap-Cat: Sedative, hypnotic. Anesthetic (intravenous).
Therap-Cat-Vet: Sedative, hypnotic.
Keywords: Anesthetic (Intravenous); Sedative/Hypnotic; Barbituric Acid Derivatives.
