White powder; [Acros Organics MSDS]
Permitted for use as an inert ingredient in non-food pesticide products; [EPA] Used to manufacture numerous products; [ExPub: ECHA REACH Registrations] "Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, widely abbreviated as EDTA (for other names, see Table), is an aminopolycarboxylic acid and a colourless, water-soluble solid. Its conjugate base is named ethylenediaminetetraacetate. It is widely used to dissolve limescale. Its usefulness arises because of its role as a hexadentate ("six-toothed") ligand and chelating agent, i.e. its ability to "sequester" metal ions such as Ca2+ and Fe3+. After being bound by EDTA, metal ions remain in solution but exhibit diminished reactivity. EDTA is produced as several salts, notably disodium EDTA and calcium disodium EDTA." [Wikipedia]
May cause irritation; [Acros Organics MSDS] See "Edetic acid."
