D-Gluconic Acid Potassium Salt function as a sequestering compound for metal ions in alkaline systems. It increases K+ transport of erythrocytes by increasing the speed of the glycolytic process. D-Gluconic Acid Potassium Salt Gluconic Acid has been shown to elevate lactate production, and ATP content, as well as induce the Hemoglobin (methemoglobin) reduction. rate in rat erythrocytes.
D-Gluconic acid potassium salt is used in cleaning of metal surfaces and in fertilizers. It is used in cell culture as a carbon source and as an electrolyte in neuroscience research. D-Gluconic acid potassium salt is used in a newly developed process entitled ARS for the prevention of shrinkage in dyed wool fabric.
