equivalents of salt

Hello, beginner question, a patent synthesis calls for 4.5 equivalents of Fremy's salt to add to dihydroethidium (60 uM) in 0.1 M phosphate buffer under stirring.

Can someone ellucidate what the 4.5 equivalents refers to, I'm not sure, is it potassium to the rest of the salt or is this something else?

I assume equivalent to nitrosyl radical? It's use can be seen here:

The mechanistic similarity with superoxide is given in the attached paper.

An interesting comparison with TEMPO (et al.) is given in the papers referring to DPPH and roasted coffee, which are also attached.

4.5 eq. of Fremy's salt means use 4.5 moles of it per mole of substrate.
