  • Description 2-AMINOETHANETHIOL is the chemical compound with the formula HSCH2CH2NH2. It is the simplest stable aminothiol and a degradation product of the amino acid cysteine. It is often used as the hydrochloride salt, HSCH2CH2NH3Cl. The comparatively high melting point of cysteamine (95-97 °C), indicates that exists in a salt form.
  • Uses antihyperlipidemic, HMGCoA reductase inhibitor Scavenges benzyl and allyl halides and ketones. Cysteamine is suitable for use:in the preparation of cysteamine modified gold nanoparticles (AuNP)in the fabrication of SU-8 microrods, where in, the amine group of cysteamine reacts with the unreacted epoxide rings present on the surface of the particles, thereby opening it and forming a covalent bondto enhance in vitro development of porcine oocytes matured and fertilized in vitroin a study to demonstrate the depletion effect of cysteamine on cystinotic leucocyte granular fractions of cystine by disulphide interchangeas a radioprotectorto administer subcutaneously in rats to study its blocking effect on somatostatin secretion without modifying the pancreatic insulin or glucagon content as a scavenger in electrophoretic gels (acetic acid/urea gels) 2-Aminoethanethiol is used in preparation method of fluorescence quenching array sensor based on cadmium telluride quantum dots and application in qualitative discrimination and quantitative analysis of organic acids.
