Sodium gluconate is the water-soluble organic sodium salt of D-gluconic acid. Gluconate salts are oxidation products of glucose and occur widely in nature. Sodium gluconate belongs to the hydroxycarboxylic acid salt family. The chemical structure of sodium gluconate consists of a six-carbon chain with five hydroxyl (-OH) groups terminating in a carboxylic acid group. The proximity of the oxygen atoms within the chemical structure lends to its function as a highly efficient chelating agent. Glucono-D-lactone is a cyclic ester (lactone) of D-gluconic acid. The lactone and the acid exist in equilibrium in aqueous solution, the toxicological effects of glucono-D-lactone, Dgluconic acid and sodium gluconate are expected to be very similar.
