    Anhydrochlortetracycline HCl, EvoPure®


    Anhydrochlortetracycline is an impurity found in the tetracycline antibiotic, chlortetracycline. Anhydrochlortetracycline is formed from tetracycline in acidic environments.

    ApplicationAnhydrochlortetracycline can be used as a secondary reference standard to trace chlortetracycline. Reference standards are well characterized, high purity compounds that can be used to help identify and/or quantify impurities in pharmaceutical compounds and antimicrobials.
    SpectrumAnhydrochlortetracycline has little antimicrobial properties; however, one study found anhydrochlortetracycline to be particularly effective against Streptomyces aureofaciens.
