Buspirone [CAS: 36505-84-7] is a medication used to manage general anxiety disorders and alleviate anxiety symptoms. It is a psychoactive drug and a partial agonist at serotonin 5-HT1A autoreceptors. Buspirone is also considered an antidepressant.
Buspirone: Use and Commercial Availability
Buspirone is a drug to treat generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and provides short-term relief for anxiety symptoms. It manages anxiety disorders. The drug is available under the trade name Buspar.
Buspirone Structure and Mechanism of Action
The chemical name of Buspirone is 8-[4-[4-(2-Pyrimidinyl)-1-piperazinyl]butyl]-8-azaspiro[4.5]decane-7,9-dione. Its chemical formula is C21H31N5O2, and its molecular weight is approximately 385.5 g/mol.
The mechanism of action of Buspirone is unknown.
Buspirone Impurities and Synthesis
Buspirone impurities are unintended substances that generate during the synthesis1, manufacturing, or storage of the drug substance. These impurities can affect the drug quality, safety, and efficacy. The main impurities found in Buspirone are related to the starting materials used in its synthesis. Therefore, it is necessary to control these impurities to ensure the quality and safety of the drug product.
Daicel Pharma offers a Certificate of Analysis (CoA) for Buspirone impurity standards, such as Buspirone EP Impurity N and Buspirone N-Oxide, generated from an analytical facility compliant with cGMP standards. The CoA includes a comprehensive characterization report comprising data2 from techniques like 1H NMR, 13C NMR, IR, MASS, and HPLC purity3. Furthermore, on request, we can provide additional data like 13C-DEPT and CHN. Daicel Pharma can synthesize unknown Buspirone impurities or degradation products and labeled compounds to assess the effectiveness of generic Buspirone. We also offer Buspirone-D8, a deuterium-labeled Buspirone standard useful in bio-analytical research, such as BA/BE studies. A complete characterization report accompanies every delivery.
