, as a reducing agent for photographic films and as mordant in the dyeing process. It is used as a plating agent, a surface treating agent, a grinding agent, a precipitating agent in rare-earth mineral processing, a bleaching agent in textile and a purifying agent in the pharmaceutical industry. It plays an important role in antibiotic medication like oxytetracycline and chloramphenicol. It finds application in water treatment plants to remove calcium waste water. It is also used as a buffer in chromatographic separation as well as bleach for wood, removing black stains caused by water penetration.
