preparing uric acid solution - (Jan/13/2010 )


Has anyone used uric acid before. I am looking for peroxynitrite scavenger and came across uric acid in many articles. The MSDS says it is not soluble in water. Does anyone know how to solubilize uric acid or suggest other peroxynitrite scavenger.

Thank you


according to the merck index, 9th edition, uric acid is soluble in water (1 gm in 15,000 parts cold, 2000 parts boiling), glycerol, solutions of alkali hydroxides and their carbonates, sodium acetate and sodium phosphate.
