 Synonyms & Historicals
Chelating Agents .
Chelators .
Metal Chelating Agents .
Agents, Chelating .
Agents, Metal Chelating .
Antagonists, Metal .
Chelating Agents, Metal .
Complexons .
Metal Antagonists .
Chemicals that bind to and remove ions from solutions. Many chelating agents function through the formation of COORDINATION COMPLEXES with METALS. .
Iron Chelating Agents .
Agents, Iron Chelating .
Chelates, Iron .
Chelating Agents, Iron .
Iron Chelates .
Organic chemicals that form two or more coordination links with an iron ion. Once coordination has occurred, the complex formed is called a chelate. The iron-binding porphyrin group of hemoglobin is an example of a metal chelate found in biological systems. .
Calcium Chelating Agents .
Calcium Chelators .
Agents, Calcium Chelating .
Chelating Agents, Calcium .
Chelators, Calcium .
Substances that bind to and sequester CALCIUM ions. .
