Ferrlecit® (sodium ferric gluconate complex in sucrose injection) is a stable macromolecular complex with an apparent molecular weight on gel chromatography of 350,000 + 23,000 daltons. The macromolecular complex is negatively charged at alkaline pH and is present in solution with sodium cations. It is free of ferrous ion and dextran polysaccharides. The product has a deep red color indicative of ferric oxide linkages.

The structural formula is considered to be [NaFe2O3(C6 H11O 7)(C12H22O11)5] ~ 200.

Each ampule of 5 ml of Ferrlecit® for intravenous injection contains 62.5 mg (12.5 mg/ml) of elemental iron as the sodium salt of a ferric ion carbohydrate complex in an alkaline aqueous solution with approximately 20% sucrose w/v (195 mg/ml) in water for injection, pH 7.7 - 9.7. Each ml contains 9 mg of benzyl alcohol as an inactive ingredient.
