What is the Chemical Compound Formula for Sodium Hypochlorite (Bleach)?
The chemical compound formula for sodium hypochlorite is NaOCl.
Reacting chlorine and sodium hydroxide will produce sodium hypochlorite:
Cl2 + 2NaOH = NaOCl + NaCl + H2O
Sodium Hypochlorite Production
Sodium Hypochlorite can be produced using either a batch production method, such
as with the Powell Sodium Hypochlorite Batch System or in greater
volumes using a continuous method.
Continuous production of sodium hypochlorite can be achieved with the
Powell Continuous Sodium Hypochlorite Dry Liquid/Vapor System or with the
Powell Continuous Sodium Hypochlorite
System that uses wet vapor chlorine from electrolytic cells.
