A chelant is a specialized molecule designed to bind to metal ions.
Phytoextraction absorption of heavy metals in soil by plants.
Phytotransformation also known as phytodegradation is the breakdown of toxic metals by plants.
Rhamnolipid chelants are more available than the free metal ions in soil for plant uptake as nutrients. Basically, fertilizers are plant nutrients.
Rhamnolipid is biodegradable in soil, and enables the metals to move through soil so that plant roots could absorb these metals as a nutrient source.
