Fe(III) Chelator

In addition to EDTA group and siderophores, there are hydroxamates, which I
believe are somewhat similar to siderophores, but easier to get (e.g. from
SIGMA). Try acetylhydroxamate, gamma-glutamylhydroxamate, etc. Hydroxamates
form colored (light absorption at 540nm) complexes with Fe(III), and this is
used in a number of assays where hydroxamates are products.
