Carbonates, carboxylates

Carbonates and carboxylates are compounds with a carboxyl functional group (COOH). Metals with a carboxyl group are called carbonates and are considered to be inorganic compounds, while higher chain compounds with this group are called carboxylates. Carboxylates act both as both chelating agents and chelates binding metal ions. Carboxylates with more functional groups act as thickeners, solvents or polymers with other functions.
