hypochlorite

Summary

Hypochlorite is an anion with the chemical formula ClO−, which combines with cations to form hypochlorite salts such as sodium hypochlorite (household bleach) and calcium hypochlorite (a component of bleaching powder, swimming pool "chlorine"). 1 It is used for disinfecting tonometer heads, noncritical surfaces, and equipment, and is also used for decontamination of blood spills. 2 Sodium hypochlorite is a solution made from reacting chlorine with a sodium hydroxide solution and is an excellent disinfectant/antimicrobial agent. 3 It is available in both liquid and solid forms and should be stored in a cool, dry, and dark place. 2 It can be crystallized as a pentahydrate NaOCl·5H2O, a pale greenish-yellow solid which is not explosive and is stable if kept refrigerated. 4
