Iron Chelating Agents

Iron Chelating Agents
Accession Number
DBCAT001107  (DBCAT003398)

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.
