a compound which forms a chelate with a metal ion.
An organic (hydrogen and carbon containing) compound that binds tocharged metallic atoms (ions) to increase absorption.
a class of chemical compounds that reacts with minerals (heavy metals) such as iron, copper, manganese and calcium and forms stable, soluble products. This action helps prevent staining and discoloration and is the preferred method for treating iron, copper and manganese. When treating iron, manganese or copper, chelates should be added at a level at least equal to, if not greater than, the mineral being treated. Chelation is a one molecule vs. one molecule process. Adding more chelating agent is usually better than adding less.
a substance which can remove heavy metals from the blood.
a chemical compound that will break down scar tissue but it is not something that is available over the counter
a compound which strongly binds metal ions (i
a material that tightly binds or captures metal ions
a molecule or ion, called a ligand, that forms more than one coordinate bond with a metal ion (usually in water), through two or more functional groups in the ligand that donate electron pairs to the metal
a molecule that binds to metal
a molecule that grabs onto an ion such as iron and holds it tightly so that it cannot precipitate
a molecule which contains at least two groups of polarity opposite to that of the atom it is wanted to remove, in such a sterical position as to fit the size of that atom, thus exerting a double or multiple pull on it
a partially neutralized salt of EDTA, in dry form, and is suitable for direct food applications
a soluble organic compound that binds with Fe to make it more available to the plant
a substance whose molecules can form several bonds to a single metal ion
a water soluble molecule that can bond tightly with metal ions, keeping them from coming out of suspension and depositing their stains and scale onto pool surfaces and equipment
An organic compound capable of forming a chelate compound with a metal ion. (See chelate compound.)
A chemical compound which coordinates with a metal to form a chelate, and which is often used to trap or remove heavy metal ions.
Additive that can form several bonds to a metal ion, in order to deactivate them. Examples of chelating agents are: EDTA, ethylenediamine, phosphite. Syn. Complexing agent
A special type of organic sequestering agent that inactivates water hardness and other metallic ions in water.
Chelating agents are organic chemicals which "sequester" or "lock up" or otherwise render non-interferent the Salts in water which form scale such as iron, calcium and magnesium carbonates.
A molecule that is soluble in water and reacts with metal ions to hold them in solution.
An organic compound that forms more than one coordinate bond with metals in solution; organic compound participating in chelation; e.g. EDTA and DTPA. See also: chelation stage
An organic sequestering agent used to inactivate hard water and other metallic ions in water. Additives in detergents for inactivating the minerals in water that interfere with cleaning. Ingredients include ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid (EDTA), NTA and sodium citrate.
(1) An organic compound in which atoms form more than one coordinate bond with metals in solution. (2) A substance used in metal finishing to control or eliminate certain metallic ions present in undesirable quantities.
Used in treatments for metal poisoning, chelating agents work to draw the toxin out of the body by bonding the metal with a molecule.
Organic compound which binds with metals in solution and inhibits precipitation.
A chemical which binds up metals. Used to prevent metal staining and water discolorartion.
A chemical or complex that interacts with an ion, usually a metal causing the ion to join that chemical or complex by both ordinary and coordinate valence forces. Such linkages result in the formation of one or more heterocyclic rings in which the metal atom is part of the ring. Commercially available chelating agents may be used to "tie up" and inactivate water hardness and other metallic ions in water.
A chemical compound sometimes fed to water to tie up undesirable metal ions, keep them in solution, and eliminate or reduce the normal effects of the ion. (See sequestering agent.)
