Hi Zen,

there are several possibilities, depending on what you try to do. If
it's for limiting iron in medium, try EDDHA (ethylene-diamine-di...
etc etc sorry can't remember whole name; look up in Sigma catalogue)
or try bacterial siderophores like desferrioxamine-B. However, if
you're working with bacteria like Salmonella, check whether they can
utilize the siderophore.

I think EDDHA will work as well in chemical reactions; beware however
that it's not binding iron only!

hope this helps,
