An ionophore is similar to a chelator but tends to increase ions within a cell, most times this is with zinc or iron to induce bacteria cell death. [1]

Clioquinol > EGCG > Quercetin [2]

Chloroquine is also one.

I thought coq10 was one but turns out that was clioquinol. There is a possibility that ubiquinol specically has -OH groups that might be able to chelate zinc and other metals allowing better absorption.
