Effective Chelation with Citrates and Gluconates
Brought to you by Jungbunzlauer
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.

This white paper describes the process for appropriate use of citrates and gluconates as chelating agents in home care formulations

Key Objectives:

  • Learn how to optimize your formulations for improved chelation with citrates and gluconates
  • Understand the performance differences between gluconates and citrates
  • Explore what pH and temperature conditions best optimize performance of citrates and gluconates
