|Description||Rocuronium Bromide is a competitive AchR antagonist, used in modern anaesthesia.|
Rocuronium bromide (RB), an aminosteroid type neuromuscular blocking agent, acts by reducing or inhibiting the depolarising effect of acetylcholine on the terminal disc of the muscle cell.  Rocuronium interacts with human liver microsomal cytochromes P450 (CYP) by binding to the substrate site. Rocuronium has caused inhibition of both reactions by 20 and 15%, respectively. 
|In vivo||Rocuronium is an ideal muscle relaxant with a rapid onset, intermediate duration of action, nondepolarizing properties and lack of cardiovascular side effects. Rocuronium produces a dose-dependent duration of neuromuscular blockade in isoflurane anesthetized horses.  Rocuronium bromide, is a relatively low potency, intermediate-acting agent with a rapid onset time of 98 seconds in dogs.  Rocuronium is an effective nondepolarizing muscle relaxant in the cat under the clinical conditions of this study. Rocuronium has a rapid onset, a short duration of action.  Rocuronium (0.6 mg/kg) results in a significant increase in heart rate one min after IV administration in the dog. Rocuronium (0.3 mg/kg and 0.6 mg/kg) produce a reliable neuromuscular block of 23–32 min duration, respectively.  Rocuronium bromide paralyzes the internal laryngeal muscles keeping the vocal cords in an intermediate position (paramedial) 60 seconds after being administered in cats. |

* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and MSDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and MSDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
