Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid disodium salt dehydrate can be used to study molecular biology, biochemicals, solutions and reagents, biological buffers, DNA and RNA purification, inorganic salts, essential chemicals and chelators. Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid disodium salt dehydrate has been used in a study to advance monitoring of illegal thyreostatic drugs in livestock. Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid disodium salt dehydrate has also been used in a study for the determination of 232Th in seawater by ICP-MS after preconcentration and separation using a chelating resin.
Chelator of divalent cations. Inhibits enzymes, such as metalloproteases, that require divalent cations for activity.

End-functionalized macromolecular starch reagents, prepared by reductive amination, were grafted onto a urethane-linked polyester-based backbone using copper-catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition (CuAAC) chemistry to produce novel amphiphilic hybrid graft copolymers. These copolymers represent the first examples of materials where the pendant chains

A novel method for selective determination of Cr(III) and Cr(VI) in environmental water samples was developed based on target-induced fluorescence quenching of glutathione-stabilized gold nanoclusters (GSH-Au NCs). Fluorescent GSH-Au NCs were synthesized by a one-step approach employing GSH as reducing/protecting
