Riboflavin 5'-Phosphate Sodium is the phosphate sodium salt form of riboflavin, a water-soluble and essential micronutrient that is the principal growth-promoting factor in naturally occurring vitamin B complexes. Riboflavin phosphate sodium is converted to 2 coenzymes, flavin mononucleotide (FMN) and flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD), which are necessary for energy production by aiding in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates and proteins and are required for red blood cell formation and respiration, antibody production and for regulating human growth and reproduction. Riboflavin phosphate sodium is essential for healthy skin, nails and hair growth.
Solubility in Water :
Riboflavin 5′-monophosphate sodium salt was used as water-soluble model drug in a combined conventional inkjet printing technology with flexographic printing for the fabrication of drug delivery systems. It may be employed as initiator for the photo-initiated polymerization of acrylamide. It may be employed in chronoamperometric assay for vanadium ions.
