EDTA ACID us for daily chemicals
EDTA is a versatile chelating agent. It can form four or six bonds with a metal ion, and it forms chelates with both transition-metal ions and main-group ions.
EDTA is frequently used in soaps and detergents, because it forms a complexes with calcium and magnesium ions. These ions are in hard water and interfere with the cleaning action of soaps and detergents. The EDTA binds to them, sequestering them and preventing their interference. EDTA binds to free metal ions and serves as a purifying agent and preservative. It basically reduces the “hardness” (or presence of metal cations) in tap water so that other ingredients in shampoos and soaps can work to cleanse more efficiently. Along the same lines, EDTA is used in laundry detergents to soften water that comes into contact with it so the other active ingredients can cleanse better.
