Metal ions can also reduce shelf-life and cause cloudiness in liquid cleaning products and detergents. discoloration. and shelf-life of personal care formulations. Another familiar example is the discoloration of white potatoes which begins when iron in the potato reacts with phenolic compounds during cooking. and other metals occur naturally in many raw materials. Metal ions shorten shelf-life and hamper performance in personal care products Metal ion reactions can seriously affect the quality. rancidity. consumer appeal. mayonnaise. as little as 0. Emulsified products are particularly sensitive.DOW CHELATING AGENTS Almost any aqueous system can be affected by uncontrolled metal ions Uncontrolled metal ions in your product or process can eat away profits by causing scaling. emulsion instability. and spreads. deodorants. and off-odors. One of the major challenges is producing formulations that provide good cleaning performance and rinsability when used with hard water. Cleaning and laundering products can be rendered ineffective by metal ions in hard water Metal ions have long plagued formulators of soaps. and other soft drink beverages. sauces. Uncontrolled metal ions also lead to problems in food processing equipment by causing scaling. orange.0 ppm copper or iron can lead to color changes. the potential for scaling and undesirable metal-catalyzed reactions is widespread (see below). These metal ions are normally found in processing water. In combined detergent and disinfectant formulations. manganese. shelf-life. off-flavors. and a host of other problems.

Metal ions cause scaling and sludge deposits in water systems Wherever water is used as a processing or heat exchange medium. In pulp and paper processing. HEDTA. pH stability. wood pulp digesters. Dow chelating agents provide an effective. whiter papers. chemical stability. metal ions reduce bleaching efficiency and cause brightness reversion Traces of heavy metals. Uncontrolled. Scaling caused by soluble calcium. which occur naturally in wood fibers and processing water. these products can also exhibit poor detergency and lathering characteristics when used with hard water. Scaling can reduce heat exchange efficiency and increase equipment downtime. Dow chelating agents produce the most stable complexes with metal ions and generally provide the most effective control of metal ion problems. Dow products are aminopolycarboxylic acids available as VERSENE* EDTA. salts can deposit to form scale. Scaling on interior surfaces of equipment is the major problem. Of the different types of metal ion control agents in use today. Unique advantages of Dow chelating agents include predictable performance. high thermal stability. economical solution to metal ion problems Chelating agents (also known as sequestering agents) can inhibit undesirable metal-catalyzed reactions by forming complexes with the metal ions. The resulting structure. called a chelate. Precipitation or cloudiness in liquid products can degrade the consumer appeal. or iron is the most common problem. and resistance to bacterial or mold breakdown. metal ion reactions can lead to problems—boilers. Dow chelating agents are used successfully to remove calcium and other types of scale and also to prevent scale formation. processing equipment and evaporators are just a few examples. DTPA and NTA). deactivates the metal ion and prevents it from reacting with other components of the system. *Trademark of The Dow Chemical Company 3 . Dow chelating agents are frequently the least costly option for metal ion control due to their effectiveness at remarkably low concentrations. pulp and paper mills have long worked to control metal ions through chelation chemistry. VERSENOL* HEDTA. it takes more bleach to achieve and maintain the desired level of brightness. Because bleach chemicals are relatively expensive. magnesium. VERSENEX* DTPA and VERSENE NTA chelating agents (generically referred to as EDTA. shelf-life. and ultimate value of the product. small amounts of Dow chelating agents prevent these problems by complexing with the metal ions responsible. As shown in the bottle on the right. these metal ions reduce the effectiveness of hydrosulfite and hydrogen peroxide bleaches used to brighten pulps. heat exchangers. Whenever water is used as a heat transfer or processing medium. As a result. work against the best efforts of pulp and paper mills to produce brighter. Although often more expensive than other materials on a per-pound basis.Without provisions to control metal ions.

Figures 2 and 3 show that EDTA complexes of iron and copper retain their stability over a wider pH range than citric acid and pyrophosphate complexes. and pH extremes. In each case. and beyond. and six metal-complexing sites respectively. In addition. Equally important. Dow chelating agents can help you reduce operating and material costs Because they are so efficient. Effective at remarkably low concentrations. releasing metal ions to cause undesirable reactions. The higher the stability constant. 20 times less VERSENE EDTA is required for protection than sodium acid pyrophosphate (SAPP). enabling one molecule to interact with all the reactive centers of a metal ion. Dow chelating agents are stable up to. A dramatic example is in treating frozen potatoes to inhibit after-cooking darkening. other metal ion control agents. Excellent heat and pH stability make Dow chelating agents compatible with most aqueous systems and processes The complexes formed by many other types of chelating agents can break down during processing and storage of products. 4 . the stronger the complex formed and the more efficiently the metal ions are controlled. may form relatively weak complexes with metal ions and can’t always provide the protection you need. enabling one molecule to interact with the majority of the reactive centers of a metal ion. Each of these ions has a fixed number of reactive sites.DOW CHELATING AGENTS How Dow chelating agents control troublesome metal ions Dow locks problem ions in a highly stable complex Soluble trace metals in aqueous systems exist as positively charged ions. and pyrophosphate with iron and copper ions. This can translate into trouble-free processing and better protection for products. eight. Higher stability means more reliable protection for your product or process One measure of the efficiency of metal ion control agents is the conditional stability constant of the complex they form with a metal ion. citric acid. five-membered ring structures in this complex are highly stable even under heat. completely deactivating the ion. Long-chain phosphate molecules also tend to hydrolyze and break down in aqueous systems. Dow chelating agents can often provide the protection you need at much lower concentrations than citric acid. and use conditions. particularly at elevated temperatures. storage. light. In this application. Figure 1 illustrates how VERSENE EDTA can block up to six reactive sites on a metal ion. or other competitive metal ion control agents. making Dow chelating agents compatible over a wide range of processing. Most metal ions have either four or six reactive sites. detergency. 400°F (204°C). By comparison. many chelating agents function within a restricted pH range. In practical terms. and rinsability in hard water. NTA has four metal complexing sites. the higher stability of EDTA complexes means better protection for your product or process. In contrast. Dow chelating agents are used in hard surface cleaners and laundry detergents to improve product performance characteristics including foaming. Figures 2 and 3 compare the conditional stability constants of complexes formed by VERSENE EDTA. even in adverse conditions. and HEDTA have six. EDTA forms the most stable complex.
