DESCRIPTION

AUGMENTIN is an oral antibacterial combination consisting of amoxicillin & the beta lactamase inhibitor, clavulanate potassium (the potassium salternative text of clavulanic acid).

Amoxicillin is an analog of ampicillin, derived from the basic penicillin nucleus, 6 aminopenicillanic acid. The amoxicillin molecular formula is C16H19N3O5S•3H2O, & the molecular weight is 419.46. Chemically, amoxicillin is (2S,5R,6R)-6-<(R)-(-)-2-Amino-2-(p-hydroxyphenyl)acetamido>-3,3- dimethyl-7-oxo-4-thia-1-azabicyclo<3.2.0>heptane-2-carboxylic acid trihydrate và may be represented structurally as:

*

Clavulanic acid is produced by the fermentation of Streptomyces clavuligerus. It is a beta-lactam structurally related khổng lồ the penicillins & possesses the ability khổng lồ inactivate some beta lactamases by blocking the active sầu sites of these enzymes. The clavulanate potassium molecular formula is C8H8KNO5, and the molecular weight is 237.25. Chemically, clavulanate potassium is potassium (Z)(2R,5R)-3-(2-hydroxyethylidene)-7-oxo-4-oxa-1-azabicyclo<3.2.0>-heptane-2-carboxylate and may be represented structurally as:
