Bis-(hydroxyamino)triazines (BHTs) constitute a new, general and highly versatile group of tridentate iron(III) chelating agents exhibiting higher affinity to iron(III) than other tridentate iron(III) chelators and superior iron(III) over iron(II) selectivity compared to desferrioxamine-B (DFO), EDTA as well as other tridentate ligands.
