Quercetin is a natural metabolite with a wide range of applications which has a variety of biological activities in
nature. In the past years, quercetin has become a focus for intensive study and literature reported that chelating with metal
ions could improve the active structure and biological activity of quercetin, which could be used in the development of more
powerful quercetin products. Here we reviewed the type and structure, biological activity, application of the quercetin metal
chelates comprehensively, with the purpose to provide reference for their further development and utilization.

Key words: quercetin metal chelates, types, structure, biological activity, application
