Chelating agents are used in industrial fields, where the presence of metal ions might negatively impact the application. By sequestering metal ions, chelating agents prevent them from interfering with a products performance. In home care applications, chelating agents improve the effectiveness of surfactants by hindering the formation of insoluble salts.
