Global Ethylenediaminetetraacetic Acid Market Introduction

Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, abbreviated as EDTA, is a type of chelating agent used for a number of industrial and household applications. Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid is a water soluble colourless liquid. EDTA has the ability to isolate metal ions in aqueous solution, especially iron and calcium ions. One of the major application areas of ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid is in cleaning purposes in various applications such as water treatment, detergents, concrete mixtures, metal cleaning and cosmetics. It helps in the prevention of water hardness in laundry applications and prevents scale formation in boilers. In cosmetics, ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid is used as an agent to improve stability in air. In the food and beverage industry, ethylenediaminetetraacetic is used as a food preservative since it prevents catalytic oxidation, which leads to decolouration. In soft drinks containing chemicals such as ascorbic acid and sodium benzoate, ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid mitigates formation of benzene (a carcinogen). In the medical field, ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid is used for chelation therapy to treat thalassemia. It helps remove the complication of repeated blood transfusions.
