Properties: Streptomycin is usually available as the trihydrochloride, trihydrochloride-calcium chloride double salt, phosphate, or sesquisulfate, which occur as granules or powder. Odorless or nearly so, with a slightly bitter taste. Most salts are hygroscopic and deliquesce on exposure to air, but are not affected by air or light. The salts are very sol in water; but almost insol in alc, chloroform, ether. Solns are levorotatory.
