Abstract

An attempt has been made to elucidate the role of alkalinization and chelation in the dissolution of both calcium oxalate monohydrate crystals and stones. Dissolution by these agents has been, measured at various concentrations over the pH range from 4 to 8. The alkalinizing agents used were sodium orthophosphate and sodium bicarbonate. The chelating agents were sodium ethylenediaminetetraacetate (EDTA) and sodium citrate.
