AkzoNobel’s chelates are called Dissolvine®. These chelates can add or remove metals in a controlled way in virtually any industrial process which uses water. Chelate chemistry is used in many of our everyday items such as processing photos, cleaning detergents, agricultural products and preserving food.

Our Dissolvine® chelating agents combine amine and carboxylic acid functionality into one molecule; this powerful combination forms much more stable complexes with metal ions compared to other non-aminopolycarboxylates (APCs) chelating agents. Dissolvine®chelates are stable over a wider range of temperatures and pH values. They have good water solubility and are inert to most chemicals, with several chelates in the Dissolvine®range being readily biodegradable in the Closed Bottle Test.

As global leaders in chelate chemistry, we’ve worked across many industrial processes and applications. Our success lies in using that expertise to develop the right product for our customers. We work closely with them to find new solutions and improve old ones.
