Diethylene Triamine Penta Acetic Acid
Diethylene triamine pentaacetic acid (DTPA) is a polyamino carboxylic acid consisting of a diethylenetriamine backbone modified with five carboxymethyl groups. The molecule can be viewed as an expanded version of EDTA. DTPA is used as its conjugate base, often undefined, which has a high affinity for metal cations.
Iron chelating agent with properties similar to those of the edetates; DTPA.
Commercially available superabsorbent polymer compositions include crosslinked polyacrylic acids or crosslinked starch-acrylic acid graft polymers, in which some of the carboxyl groups are neutralized with sodium hydroxide solution or potassium hydroxide solution.
