Anhydrochlortetracycline is an impurity found in the tetracycline antibiotic, chlortetracycline. Anhydrochlortetracycline is formed from tetracycline in acidic environments.
|Application||Anhydrochlortetracycline 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.|
|Spectrum||Anhydrochlortetracycline has little antimicrobial properties; however, one study found anhydrochlortetracycline to be particularly effective against Streptomyces aureofaciens.|
|Molecular Formula||C22H21ClN2O7 • xHCl (lot specific)|
