Mechanism Of Action The main function of ferric sulfate is as a hemostatic agent in different medical practices. This hemostatic function is achieved when ferric sulfate is applied directly in the damaged tissue. Once applied, ferric sulfate forms ferric ion-protein complex which helps the sealing of the damaged vessels mechanically. The formation of agglutinated protein complexes produces the generation of occlusion in the capillary orifices.
