5-AMINOVALERIC ACID Usage And Synthesis

Chemical Properties

white to off-white crystalline powder

Uses

5-Aminovaleric Acid is used in the development of drugs that halts severe type of seizures.

Definition

ChEBI: A delta-amino acid comprising pentanoic acid with an amino substituent at C-5; a methylene homologue of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) that is a weak GABA agonist.

Purification Methods

Crystallise it from H2O/EtOH. When heated above its melting point, it is converted to 2-piperidone with m 200o. [Wood & Colver J Am Chem Soc 67 654 1945, Beilstein 4 IV 2636.]
