Another mainstay in our well-supplied stockpile of research chemicals, diclazepam has been well known to the scientific community for several decades after being first synthesized in 1960 by Leo Sternbach and his team at Hoffman-LaRoche. This substance belongs to the group of benzodiazepines and has chemical structure analogue to diazepam and fludiazepam, both of which undergo N-demethylation and exhibit a range of anxyolytic, anticonvulsant, hypnotic, amnesic and muscle-relaxant properties. Reports indicate that diclazepam pharmacology can be compared to that of its relatives, only with a potential to facilitate strong action even in very small doses (about ten times smaller than for diazepam, for example).
Research shows that diclazepam is active on the benzodiazepine receptor as a positive allosteric modulator, making this substance a frequent target of scientific curiosity. The substance is also sometimes referred to as 2’-chloro-diazepam and has systematic name 7-chloro-5-(2-chlorophenyl)-1-methyl-1,3-dyhydro-2H-1,4-benzodiazepine-2-one, with a molecular mass of 319.185 g/mol and molecular formula C16H12CI2N2O. To make things even better, chlorine groups present in diclazepam molecules render this chemical suitable for generation of radio isotopes, which is a great way to precisely map the receptors during the course of laboratory study. Intriguing chemical features of this type have made diclazepam pellets one of the most frequently purchased research chemicals in our stock.
Researchers who wish to study diclazepam effects and dosage should be aware that our online store sells research chemicals strictly for in vitro use by trained personnel in adequate laboratory settings. Please note that human consumption of diclazepam is not permitted under any circumstances and could pose a safety hazard.
