Dipotassium ethylenediaminetetraacetate, also known as EDTA K2, is a white crystalline powder on the surface. It is a common complexing agent because it can complex with calcium in the blood to inactivate calcium, thereby preventing blood with coagulation purpose.It is often used in the preparation of anticoagulants in vacuum blood collection tubes.
There are two CAS numbers of dipotassium EDTA, one of which is dipotassium EDTA crystal hydrate, the CAS number is 25102-12-9, and the CAS number of dipotassium EDTA is 2001-94-7, many people will confuse these two CAS numbers. You need to pay special attention to the difference is that one molecule differs by two crystal waters. Desheng will give a general introduction to the scope of use of Dipotassium EDTA.
1. Used in vacuum blood collection tubes
In recent years, with the upgrading of blood testing, Dipotassium EDTA has been widely used in blood collection tubes. As an anticoagulant, it can rapidly store leukocyte hyperplasia for a period of time, prevent platelet aggregation, and prevent blood from coagulating , which not only facilitates medical staff to improve blood testing efficiency, but also promotes more accurate test results.
2. Used in industrial production
In addition to the common use for blood anticoagulation, dipotassium EDTA can also be used in the field of industrial production and can be used as a buffer. When used in gel engineering, it not only has excellent retardation effect, but also can prolong the time of the repair system and ensure a certain strength, so that it can be quickly repaired on bridge decks, highways, etc.
3. Used in oilfield production
In oilfield production, dipotassium EDTA can be used as a stabilizer, which can not only chelate calcium and magnesium ions to stabilize the entire operating system, but also constitute a desulfurization synergist, so that the desulfurization synergist can effectively interact with the sulfide in the system. A chemical reaction is generated to effectively remove sulfides and ensure production safety.
4. Used in daily chemicals
Dipotassium EDTA can also be used in deodorants or detergents, liquid soaps, and has a significant effect on deodorizing at home. In addition, according to research, dipotassium EDTA can also be used to prepare activated carbon.
