Excluding Sales Tax

Copper (II) citrate is a tricarboxylate salt with the formula Cu3(C6H5O7)2. Copper is an essential micronutrient required for electron transfer processes and serves as a redox-active metallo-component of many enzymes, including those involved in neurotransmitter synthesis, in energy metabolism and in collagen and elastin cross-linking. It is part of the catalytic center in many enzymes. Copper is also a component of melanin, the pigment that gives color to the hair and skin. Other mainstream uses of copper citrate include copper plating additive; organic substitute for copper halides, nitrates, phosphates, or sulfates; hydrogen sulfide remover; wood preservative; micronutrient fertilizer for crops; catalyst; etc.
