The molecular formula of atenolol is C14H22N2O3. In 1976, atenolol was developed to replace propranolol as a treatment for hypertension, which can reduce the activity of the heart. But unlike propranolol, atenolol does not cross the blood-brain barrier, thereby avoiding various side effects on the central nervous system.
