4. Pentobarbital The oxybarbiturate pentobarbital continues to be used to produce rodent anesthesia. The use of pentobarbital stems from its generalized availability, modest cost, widely available database encompassing decades of use, rapid anesthetic onset, nonirritant nature, and ease of IP injection to rodents of varying ages and body weights (Wixson and Smiler, 1997). , 1990). , 1991). , 1987a). Commercial preparations of pentobarbital are racemic mixtures. The (+) isomer causes a transient period of hyperexcitability before CNS depression, while the (−) isomer produces relatively smooth and progressively deeper hypnosis (Huang and Barker, 1980).

These metabolites are inactive and more water soluble, facilitating renal excretion. The initial step in metabolism, which occurs within the hepatocyte endoplasmic reticulum, is side-chain oxidation at the number 5 carbon atom of the benzene ring, yielding carboxylic acid. Hepatic reserve capacity for oxidation of barbiturates is quite large, such that hepatic dysfunction is extreme before barbiturate activity is prolonged due to decreased metabolism. Methohexital is metabolized three to four times more rapidly than the thiobarbiturates; its lower lipid solubility allows more drug to remain within the circulation and thus be available for metabolism.
