Enriched with immense market knowledge and expertise, we are engaged in offering our clients Salbutamol. It is prepared as a racemic mixture of R(-) and S(+) stereoisomers. The stereospecific preparation of R(-) isomer of albuterol is referred to as levalbuterol. It is used to treat asthma including asthma attacks, exercise-induced bronchoconstriction, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Salbutamol may also be used to treat high blood potassium levels.
