Degradable Chelated Micronutrients Fertilizer: Iminodisuccinate Acid Salts for Agriculture

May 17, 2016

Iminodisuccinic Acid (IDS) is eco-friendly biodegradable chelating agent, alternative of EDTA (Ethylene Diamine Tetra Acetic Acid) in many fields, such as chelated micronutrients fertilizer in agriculture, water treatment chemical, detergent. Tetrasodium Iminodisuccinate (IDS Na4) is tetra sodium salt of Iminodisuccinic Acid.


How does Iminodisuccinic acid (IDS) work in Fertilizer?

IDS chelates is a biodegradable compound in which a metal atom or ion is bound to a ligand, so as to form a heterocyclic ring containing a metal atom. This prevents the conversion of these metals into insoluble compounds in soil or irrigation water.


Iminodisuccinic Acid Metal Complexes (chelated trace elements for fertilizer) is biodegradable complexing agent, becauese it is decomposed by soil bateria to simple and harmless compounds. 


Iminodisuccinic Acid (IDS) chelates for fertilizer:

Chelated Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg), Zinc (Zn), Copper (Cu), Iron (Fe), Manganese (Mn)

We manufacture IDS chelated micronutrients in liquid or solid powder.
