Product Description

Cetyltrimethylammonium Bromide

Application Notes

CTAB has been used for the isolation of plant high molecular weight DNA (by a rapid method) as well as plant DNA for use in PCR analysis. It has been used to precipitate nucleic acids. CTAB provides enhancement of Concanavalin A mediated agglutination. It has been used for the determination of protein molecular weights in electrophoretic systems and for determination of critical micelle concentration of detergents. CTAB has also been used as a titrant for potentiometric titration of perchlorate and as a phase-transfer catalyst in reduction of arenes and heterocyclic compounds.

Usage Statement

This rare chemical product is available for immediate delivery and is sold "as is". All sales are final. MP Biomedicals does not collect analytical data for this product however, analytical tests may be performed upon custom request for bulk orders.
