Flamel expects to launch Bloxiverz in July 2013 in 0.5 and 1.0 mg/mL strengths

Chemistry 

Neostigmine, N,N,N-trimethyl-meta-(dimethylcarbomoyloxy)-phenylammonium methylsulfonate, which can be viewed as a simplified analog of physostigmine, is made by reacting 3-dimethylaminophenol with N-dimethylcarbamoyl chloride, which forms the dimethylcarbamate, and its subsequent alkylation using dimethylsulfate forming the desired compound. Neostigmine synthesis.png

Neostigmine shows notable UV/VIS absorption at 261nm, 267nm, and 225nm.

Neostigmine’s 1H NMR Spectroscopy reveals shifts at: 7.8, 7.7, 7.4, 7.4, 3.8, and 3.1 parts per million. The higher shifts are due to the aromatic hydrogens. The lower…
