What Is Piracetam?
Piracetam is a nootropic compound in the "racetam" family that is structurally similar to the neurotransmitter GABA (though it does not function in the same way). As the “parent molecule” of the racetam family, Piracetam was first synthesized in 1964. All other racetams, including others like Aniracetam, share the same 2-pyrrolidone base structure. Piracetam is water-soluble and considered very stable. It has a molar mass of 142.16 g/mol and a molecular formula of C6H10N2O2.
