Chlorine (a.k.a. Cl2) figures among the most important chemical commodities, being used in the manufacture of a myriad of day-to-day life products. In fact, the state of development of a country’s chemical industry can be measured by, among other factors, the country’s chlorine production. Molecular chlorine is a yellowish green gas (or liquified gas), with pungent and suffocating odor. It is a strong oxidant and a chlorinating agent, adding to double bonds in aliphatic compounds or undergoing substitution reactions with both aliphatic and aromatic compounds. It is an indispensable intermediate in the chemical industry, employed in the manufacture of a multitude of end products.
