Sodium hypochlorite solution is used in textile and paper bleaching, laundry trade, sterilization of swimming pools, disinfection of drinking water, treatment of cyanide wastes of electroplating industry and treatment of sewage effluent. It is also used as a sanitizer and deodorizer for floors, sinks and toilets, as a therapeutic adjunct in the treatment of certain skin diseases and as a safe antiseptic, Commercial sodium hypochlorite solution usually contains 10 to 15 percent of available chlorine at ambient temperatures. The stability of hypochlorite solution is greatly affected by heat, light, pH and presence of heavy metal cations ( which are present in caustic soda ). The optimum stability is attained at a pH close to 11 and with the heavy metal cations content not more than 5 ppm. Storage temperatures should not exceed 32°C above which the rate of decomposition becomes too high and the available chlorine content is rapidly depleted. At temperatures above 38”C, sodium chlorate formation becomes appreciable resulting in loss of sodium hypochlorite.
