Biological Activity

Description Octenidine, a cationic surfactant, is active against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria.
In vitro

Octenidine binds to negatively charged surfaces like bacterial cell envelopes and eukaryotic cell membranes probably inducing membrane disruption. Its main binding partners are salts of fatty acids glycerol phosphates, found in the cell membranes of mammalian and bacterial cells. Due to this strong and unspecific interaction with bacterial walls it has a broad antimicrobial spectrum against a variety of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), skin microflora and fungi[1].

Protocol

Solubility (25°C)

In vitro DMSO 60 mg/mL (96.18 mM)
Ethanol '-1 mg/mL

* 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.

Bio Calculators

Molarity Calculator

Molarity Calculator

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 SDS / COA (available on product pages).

Dilution Calculator

Dilution Calculator

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 )

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.
