Information on Ferric Ammonium DTPA Powder
Ferric Ammonium salt of Diethylene Triamine Penta Acetic Acid is a Sequestering / Chelating Agent. DTPA is a synthetic amino acid. It is widely known as DTPA. It is a white powder. DTPA Acid is insoluble in water. It is also named as Diethylene Triamine Pentaacetate. It is widely used to dissolve Metallic Impurities. There are various Salts / Derivatives of DTPA.
DTPA is widely recognized as effective Sequestering Agent. DTPA grabs metallic cation such as Lead or Calcium from the process and forms a stable compound that is then excreted from the system. The stability of this bond is vital to get the success in removing the inorganic impurities out of the system. If the bond is weak, other chemicals can break this bond to form their own compounds.
Synthesis / Manufacturing process of DTPA
The compound was earlier prepared by the reaction of Diethylene Triamine (DETA) and Monochloroacetic acid. Today, DTPA is synthesized on an industrial scale from Diethylene Triamine (DETA), Formaldehyde, and Sodium cyanide (NaCN). The sodium salt of DTPA forms first in both processes and then can be converted to the acid form.
