dear stephen,

you may have a look into the following paper.

New metal chelate adsorbent selective for proteins and peptides
containing neighbouring histidine residues. Hochuli et al. (1987)
Journal of Chromatography, 411, 177-184

describes the preparation of Ni-NTA-sepharose from chemicals everyone can buy
this paper is also the basis of the Ni-NTA patent hold by Hoffmann-La Roche
licence by QIAGEN

there are also several references in this paper about the preparation of 
Iminodiaceticacid IDA chelating material.

hope this helps
