Safety Information
Calcium gluconate Usage And Synthesis
  • DescriptionCalcium gluconate is the calcium salt of gluconate, being an oxidative product of glucose containing 9.3% calcium. Calcium gluconate is a kind of mineral supplement and medication. It can be used for vein injection to treat the low blood calcium, high blood potassium, and magnesium toxicity. It is required only when there is not enough calcium in the diet. It is also used for the treatment of black widow spider bites to relieve muscle cramping and treatment of osteoporosis or rickets. It can also be used to decrease the capillary permeability in allergic conditions, nonthrombocytopenic purpura and exudative dermatoses.

  • Usesanalgesic, antipyretic
  • UsesCalcium Gluconate is used as an inert ingredient in pesticide formulations applied to crops. It is also used as a supplement to fortify beverages and foods lacking a sufficient amount of calcium.
  • UsesIn sewage purification; in coffee powders to prevent caking.
  • UsesCalcium Gluconate is a white crystalline granule or powder that functions as a firming agent, formulation aid, sequestrant, and sta- bilizer. at room temperature the anhydrous form has a solubility of approximately 1 g in 30 ml of water, which improves in boiling water to approximately 1 g in 5 ml of water. it also exists as calcium gluconate (monohydrate). it is used as a source of calcium ions for sodium alginate gels, and as a calcium fortifier in baked goods, pud- dings, and dairy product analogs. it functions as a coagulation aid in milk and instant pudding powders and as a means of masking the bitter aftertaste of some artificial sweeteners.
  • brand nameCalglucon (Novartis).
  • Industrial usescalcium gluconate [Ca(C6H11O7)2] is used as a food additive in vitamin pills.injection of a 10% calcium gluconate has been recommended. It has to be kept in mind that the plasma Ca2+ level and any changes to the electrocardiogram (ECG) have to be carefully monitored.
  • Safety ProfileModerately toxic by subcutaneous, intraperitoneal, and intravenous routes. Human systemic effects in infants by intramuscular route: dermatitis and fever. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and fumes. See also CALCIUM COMPOUNDS.
  • Veterinary Drugs and TreatmentsCalcium salts are used for the prevention or treatment of hypocalcemic conditions.
  • Purification MethodsDissolve it in H2O, filter and precipitate it by adding MeOH. Filter off the solid and dry it in a vacuum at 85o. Alternatively, dissolve it in H2O, filter (from insoluble inorganic Ca) and evaporate it to dryness under vacuum at 85o. [March et al. J Am Pharm Assoc 41 366 1952, Beilstein 3 IV 1255.]
