EUK 8 and EUK 134 are synthetic catalytic scavengers of reactive oxygen species with superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase mimetic activity.1 EUK 124 is a structural analog of EUK 8 and EUK 134 with significantly reduced activity. EUK 124 and EUK 8 inhibit superoxide-mediated reduction of an electron acceptor (i.e., SOD mimetic activity), with IC50 values of 5 µM and 0.7 µM, respectively.2

Cayman Chemical Company regularly evaluates our shipping methods to ensure product stability is maintained and our corporate environmental impact is minimized. Products selected for review are evaluated and shipping methods are certified by our Scientists. While occasionally our method of shipping a product may change, rest assured the shipping conditions on all Cayman Chemical products have been reviewed and validated.

Cayman Chemical was formed over thirty years ago by demonstrating the value of naturally growing gorgonian corals as a renewable, economically viable source of prostaglandins. Today we operate our business knowing that we owe our start to the renewable resources our environment had provided. As Cayman Chemical continues to grow we consistently evaluate our business processes to ensure we are operating at the highest environmental standards.
