Guanidine thiocyanate is an essential reagent used in molecular biology, biochemistry, and molecular biology research. It is an organic compound with a molecular formula of C3H7N3O2S. Guanidine thiocyanate is a white hygroscopic powder that is highly soluble in water, ethanol, and methanol. It is used for the denaturation of proteins and nucleic acids, and for the extraction and purification of nucleic acids. It can also be used for the preparation of buffers, for the determination of cations, and for the extraction of proteins. Guanidine thiocyanate is stable when stored at room temperature and is non-toxic.
