O-Acetyl-L-carnitine hydrochloride Usage And Synthesis

Description

Levacecarnine hydrochloride is a nootropic agent structurally related to the natural substance L-carnitine. It is reported to be useful in the treatment of cognition disorders in the elderly, perhaps due to its weak cholinergic properties.

Chemical Properties

Crystallline powder

Originator

Sigma-Tau (Italy)

Uses

Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) is an important dietary supplement. ALC is a natural substance, present in the human body, especially in muscles, in the brain, and in the male testicles. ALC is the acetylated, high-energy form of L-Carnitine.

brand name

NICETILE; BRANICEN

Purification Methods

Recrystallise the chloride from isopropanol. Dry it over P2O5 under high vacuum. The S-betaine crystallises from EtOH/Et2O with m 145o(dec) and is hygroscopic; it has [] D -19.5o (c 6, H2O).
