The toxicity of uranium to various vital organs such as the lung, kidney, bone, and genitals was analyzed, and the research progress of uranium mobilization agents such as diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid, catechol, chitosan, and related derivatives, was summarized. The purpose of this study is to promote the use of chelating agents to enhance their detoxification capacity and reduce the side effects.
