Antimalarial agent; interacts with heme to produce carbon-centred free radicals, causes protein alkylation and damages parasite microorganelles and membranes. Also selectively inhibits the P-type ATPase (PfATP6) of Plasmodium falciparum (Ki ~ 150 nM). Displays antiangiogenic effects in mouse embryonic stem cell-derived embryoid bodies.

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 282.33. Batch specific molecular weights may vary from batch to batch due to solvent of hydration, which will affect the solvent volumes required to prepare stock solutions.
|Concentration / Solvent Volume / Mass||1 mg||5 mg||10 mg|
|1 mM||3.54 mL||17.71 mL||35.42 mL|
|5 mM||0.71 mL||3.54 mL||7.08 mL|
|10 mM||0.35 mL||1.77 mL||3.54 mL|
|50 mM||0.07 mL||0.35 mL||0.71 mL|
