Bicucculine is not very soluble in water, but bicucculine methiodide 
is. If you do manage to get bicucculine into solution and freeze it it 
wil most likely come out of solution upon thawing. Muscimol is freely 
soluble and can be stored for long periods without significant 
degradation. That is my experienece at least.
