1. A chemical formulation in which a metal atom (very often a micronutrient such as iron) is bound with an organic component to improve the overall uptake of the micronutrient.


The picture shows an example of the types of molecular-assembly that can be formed using chelate-tethered nucleobases. Shown here is an inverted G-tetrad formed through metal-ligand bond formation between a guanine derivative and CdSO4.
