Sodium hypochlorite - NaCIO, receive by method chlorination of water solution of a natr of caustic (NaOH) molecular chlorine (Cl2) or electrolysis of solution of salt (NaCI). The molecular mass of NaCIO (on the international atomic masses of 1971) - 74, 44. The enterprises is issued in the form of water solutions of different concentration.
Water solutions of hypochlorite of sodium are used for disinfecting because of high antibacterial activity and to a broad spectrum of activity on different microorganisms, apply this disinfectant in many activities including when processing drinking and waste water.Disinfecting effect of hypochlorite of sodium is based on dissolution in water it in the same way as chlorine at dissolution in water, forms hlornovatisty acid which has the oxidizing and disinfecting effect. NaCIO + H20> NaOH + HCIO
