Interactions

Javel water is unstable and, in the vicinity of light and heat decomposes. When dissolved in water, it produces Hydrochloric acid and Hypochlorous acid, which is highly corrosive and, as a strong oxidizer, is incompatible with most of the materials. Javel water is disinfectant since it releases chlorine.

Production Process

Javel water is prepared by blowing the chlorine gas into a solution of sodium hydroxide.
