Name Disulfiram
CAS Type 1 Name Thioperoxydicarbonic diamide (((H2N)C(S))2S2), tetraethyl-
Equivalent Terms Alcophobin | Antabus | Antabuse | Anticol | Bis(diethylthiocarbamoyl) Disulfide | Dicupral | Disulfide, Tetraethylthiuram | Esperal | Tetraethylthioperoxydicarbonic Diamide, ((H2N)C(S))2S2 | Tetraethylthiuram Disulfide | Teturam
CAS Registry Number 97-77-8
Definition A carbamate derivative used as an alcohol deterrent. It is a relatively nontoxic substance when administered alone, but markedly alters the intermediary metabolism of alcohol. When alcohol is ingested after administration of disulfiram, blood acetaldehyde concentrations are increased, followed by flushing, systemic vasodilation, respiratory difficulties, nausea, hypotension, and other symptoms (acetaldehyde syndrome). It acts by inhibiting aldehyde dehydrogenase.
