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.
