Literature References: Chelating agent. Prepn: Fukayama et al., JP 52 4327 (1952 to Sanwa Pure Chem.), C.A. 48, 5215c (1954). Use in HPLC determn of iron, titanium, osmium and aluminum: E. Wang, A. Liu, Microchem. J. 43, 191 (1991); in spectrophotometric determn of titanium: S. Honshi et al., Anal. Sci. 13, 863 (1997).
Properties: Crystals, nonhygroscopic. Very freely sol in water. Produces water-sol, colored compds with metal salts. With ferric chloride the resulting complex yields a deep blue soln at pH below 5. Titanium salts give an orange color, copper salts produce a green-yellow, and hexavalent molybdenum a canary-yellow color.
Use: In determination of trace metals.
