Sodium thiosulfate. This figure demonstrates the chemical structure of sodium thiosulfate, which is an antibrowning, reducing, and antioxidant agent: Capable of donating electrons to re-pair unpaired damaging electrons to be an effective antioxidant as well as a chelator of cations such as the calcium excess in calcific uremic arteriolopathy – CPLX.
