Sodium Hypochlorite Production Cost Analysis 2021

Sodium hypochlorite is a pale greenish-yellow dilute solution which is better known as liquid bleach. It is a household chemical widely used as a disinfectant or a bleaching agent. Sodium hypochlorite comes with superior destaining properties. It is used to remove mould stains, dental stains caused by fluorosis, and the stains on crockery, especially the one caused by the tannins in tea. It has also been used widely in laundry detergents and as a surface cleaner.

The compound in this solution is unstable, which decomposes easily. It liberates chlorine, which is the active principle of many products. Thus, sodium hypochlorite is one of the most crucial chlorine-based bleach. Its properties of bleaching, cleaning, deodorizing, and caustic are due to oxidation and hydrolysis or saponification. When organic dirt is exposed to hypochlorite, it becomes water-soluble and non-volatile, which lessens its odour and facilitates its removal. Another property of sodium hypochlorite is that in solutions, it can exhibit broad-spectrum anti-microbial activity. Thus, it is widely used in healthcare facilities in a variety of settings. It is generally diluted in water depending on its intended use.
