The pyrones, 3-hydroxy-2-methyl-4-pyrone (maltol) and 3-hydroxy-2-ethyl-4-pyrone (ethyl maltol) chelate iron with a high affinity and selectivity. The resulting 1:3 (metal-ligand) complexes, being neutral, are able to partition readily across cell membranes and thus may facilitate iron transport across the intestinal...

Zn2+ has been allowed to equilibrate across the red cell membrane using two agents that increase membrane permeability to this ion: the ionophore A23187 and the specific carrier ethylmaltol. Extracellular free Zn2+ was controlled with EGTA (1,2-di(2-aminoethoxy)ethane-NNN'N'tetra-acetic acid] buffers, except...

The pursuit of orally available Fe(III) chelating agents has resulted in several clinical trials of 1,2-dimethyl-3-hydroxypyrid-4-one (CP20). Chromatography of this and related Fe chelators on silica-based columns has proven difficult due to unwanted interactions with the stationary phase, including with...
