What is Sodium Hypochlorite?

A solution produced by reacting chlorine with a sodium hydroxide solution is sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl). Most chlor-alkali cells produce these two reactants as significant co-products. Sodium hypochlorite, often known as bleach, has many applications and is an effective disinfectant and antibacterial agent. Bleach is a brand name for sodium hypochlorite, which has the chemical formula NaClO. It is a clear yellow chemical.

This chemical has a variety of industrial applications, although it is most often employed as a bleaching agent in homes and the wastewater treatment industry.

What is the Chemical Formula of Sodium Hypochlorite?

Sodium hypochlorite (also known as bleach in a dilute solution) is a chemical compound made up of a sodium cation (Na+) and a hypochlorite anion (OCl or ClO) with the formula NaOCl or NaClO.

Is Sodium Hypochlorite harmful to life?

It is dangerous to consume sodium hypochlorite. Vomiting and corrosive damage to the gastrointestinal system may occur when too much salt is consumed. Household bleaches containing sodium hypochlorite often produce esophageal discomfort, although they have a small risk of severe damage, such as perforation. According to the MSDS for sodium hypochlorite, it is usually safe to use as an industrial product since it may be used for wastewater treatment and industrial cooling water. To prevent any negative consequences, proper storage and disposal of sodium hypochlorite must be considered.

Sodium Hypochlorite is a clear yellow industrial chemical. It is produced in factories by diluting sodium hypochlorite solution with water to make a new 25% solution.


What are the hazardous effects of Sodium Hypochlorite?

If eaten or if exposed to the skin or eyes, sodium hypochlorite may be hazardous. Sodium Hypochlorite gas is generated when combined with acidic solutions, and chloramine solution is produced when mixed with ammonia-based solutions, which contribute to harmful effects.

Proper handling of Sodium Hypochlorite

Proper handling and storage of Sodium Hypochlorite must be fully observed and wearing appropriate personal protective equipment. Keep the compound cold, dry, and well-ventilated away from incompatible chemicals.


What will happen if Sodium Hypochlorite is heated?

Chlorine dissolves from the solution at a rate of 0.75-gram active chlorine per day. The sodium hypochlorite then disintegrates when heated. When sodium hypochlorite comes into touch with acids, sunshine, some metals, and toxic and corrosive gasses, such as chlorine gas, this also occurs.


Is Sodium Hypochlorite soluble compound?

Sodium Hypochlorite is highly soluble in water and methanol. It decomposes to chlorate or oxygen.
