Determination of Fe2+ and Fe3+ in aqueous solutions containing food chelators by differential pulse anodic stripping voltammetry
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2010
The objective was to investigate interactions between iron and food chelators in an aqueous environment. The net complexation were investigated by DPASV in a NaClO4 electrolyte using a platinum electrode. The experimental conditions were simulating the environment of the human duodenum. The results indicated a net coordination affinity between Fe2+ and the organic acids in the following order; ascorbic acidphytate>pyruvate>lactate>acetate. For Fe3+ net complexation, the stability was in the order of lactate>phytate>pyruvate>acetate>citrate. In conclusion, DPASV in conjunction with a platinum electrode is suitable for studies in aqueous systems where the net complexation of metal is important.
