Calcium Gluconate is the calcium salt of gluconic acid, an oxidation product of glucose, and contains 9.3% calcium, which is about one-third of the calcium in the strength of calcium chloride. It is an ingredient found in a variety of supplements and vitamins and is used to lower potassium in the blood. Calcium gluconate is used as a mineral supplement and medication when there is insufficient calcium in the diet. Supplementation may be done to treat or prevent osteoporosis or rickets, consequences of hypocalcemia.
It is made by mixing gluconic acid with calcium carbonate or calcium hydroxide
D-Gluconic acid calcium salt
|Calcium gluconate is used to prevent or treat calcium deficiencies. Oral calcium salts are used as dietary supplemental therapy for people who may not get enough calcium in their regular diet|
|Calcium gluconate is used as a cardioprotective agent in high blood potassium|
|Calcium gluconate is the antidote for magnesium sulfate toxicity|
Calcium gluconate is also used as/for:
|Hungry Bone Syndrome|
|Tumor Lysis Syndrome|

Methyl magnesium chloride is the simplest of Grignard’s reagents. The neat molecule is sensitive to air and moisture. Therefore, it is offered as solution in THF with variable molarity values.
Polysorbate 20 is a gentle, oily, liquid cosmetic additive that functions as a non-ionic surfactant and wetting agent that enhances the spread-ability of liquids.
1,4-Dibromobutane is a chemical compound from the group of aliphatic, saturated halogenated hydrocarbons. 1,4-Dibromobutane shows similar reactions as the mono-brominated 1-bromobutane, however, in contrast, it is doubly functionalized.
Tetrabutylammonium fluoride trihydrate (TBAF trihydrate) is a hygroscopic solid and is a versatile reagent in many chemical reactions. It us usually consumed in aldol-type condensation, Michael-type, and ring opening reactions.
Pyrophosphoryl chloride is colourless to pale yellow liquid, reasonably easy to handle. It reacts violently with water & miscible with most organic solvents.
It is used in pharmaceutical and other organic synthesis, as laser materials and electronic components.
Benzilic acid ethyl ester is an oil organic liquid. Its reactivity is attributed to the presence of the hydroxyl group at alpha-position to the carboxylic acid group and hence it participates in various reactions leading to value-added intermediates and APIs.
Bromobenzene, an aryl halide, is a clear, colorless liquid with a pleasant odor. It is soluble in methanol and diethyl ether, and very slightly soluble in cold water.
