Iron--EDTA was shown to catalyse OH. production from H2O2 and ascorbate by a mechanism largely independent of superoxide. When ascorbate and superoxide were both present, the ascorbate mechanism was more important than superoxide as a source of OH., and would appear to be more significantly biologically.
