MedKoo CAT#: 318682

CAS#: 18559-94-9 (free base)

Description: Salbutamol is a β2-AR agonist. Salbutamol is a short-acting, selective beta2-adrenergic receptor agonist used in the treatment of asthma and COPD. It is 29 times more selective for beta2 receptors than beta1 receptors giving it higher specificity for pulmonary beta receptors versus beta1-adrenergic receptors located in the heart.
