Merge with thiamine, or keep? andycjp (talk) 07:28, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

I'd say keep. Wiki is not paper, and there appear to be issues specific to thiamine mononitrate that don't apply to natural Thiamine. Might want to add a link here from the Thiamine page to get some eyeballs on it to finish it up. Pegasus Epsilon (talk) 02:04, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

A lot of content on this page is related to thiamine in general. Content on this page should be reserved for 'thiamine mononitrate' only — Preceding unsigned comment added by January2009 (talkcontribs) 20:00, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Molecular Weight is apparently wrong[edit]

I noticed that this page shows the MW of thiamine mononitrate to be 265.35 g/mol. This is wrong. According to the NCBI pubchem database, the true MW should be 327.36 g/mol ([1]. Because this information is automatically generated by chembox, I'm not sure of the best way to remedy this mistake. Also, Cl is listed as one of the elements when it is not at all a part of thiamine mononitrate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Avocaado (talkcontribs) 00:24, 10 April 2014 (UTC)



I have redirected this article to thiamine. First of all, thiamine mononitrate is just a salt form of thiamine; in terms of its biological activity and use as a vitamin, the nitrate portion is irrelevant. A majority of the content of this article is about the activity of thiamine and is entirely redundant with content at thiamine. Nearly all of the content of this article is unreferenced as well. It doesn't make any sense to maintain two separate articles about the same topic, especially when this one is so deficient. This is consistent with the way other salt forms of thiamine, such as thiamine hydrochloride, also redirect to thiamine. -- Ed (Edgar181) 12:19, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
