Derivative Type: Dibarium salt
Molecular Formula: C13H15Ba2N4O12P
Molecular Weight: 724.91
Percent Composition: C 21.54%, H 2.09%, Ba 37.89%, N 7.73%, O 26.49%, P 4.27%
Properties: uv max (pH 1): 269, 244 nm (e 11850, 9580). If the Bratton-Marshall procedure [J. Biol. Chem. 128, 537 (1939)] is modified by keeping the sample in ice during, and for 10 minutes after the addition of the reagents, SAICAR produces a purple chromophore having max absorption at 550 nm. The diazonium salt of SAICAR is very unstable and dec before it can couple under the usual test conditions.
Absorption maximum: uv max (pH 1): 269, 244 nm (e 11850, 9580)
