In water, it can locate toxins such as heavy metals and bind to them, thus helping in water treatment processes.
Once the heavy metal molecules are identified, potassium oxalate can also be used as a chelating agent to bind and help rid water of the contaminating toxins.
Heavy Metal Poisoning
Heavy metal poisoning in modern times is much more common than one would think. Lead, cadmium, and mercury are of particular concern when talking about metal poisoning.
A chelating agent is a compound that typically contains carbon molecules. When introduced to a substance such as blood, it forms bonds to heavy metal ions and helps transport and excrete the toxins out of the system.
With water soluble agents such as potassium oxalate monohydrate, toxins can be flushed out!
