Uses of Chlorine and Chlorate(l) Edit

Disproportionation: The halogen is reduced and oxidised at the same time.

Chlorine with Water: Edit

Cl2(aq) + H2O(l) ⇌ HClO(aq) + HCl(aq)

In Sunlight: Edit

2Cl2 + 2H2O → 4HCl + O2

Chlorination of Pools Edit

NaClO(s) + H2O(l) ⇌ Na+ + OH- + HClO(aq)

Reaction of Chlorine with cold, dilute NaOH solution Edit

Cl2(aq) + 2NaOH(aq) → NaCl(aq) + NaClO(aq) +H2O(l)

The mixture of NaCl and NaClO is used as bleach to disinfect/kill bacteria.

The benefits to health of water treatment by chlorine outweigh its toxic effects.
