About Chlorine. Chlorine (a.k.a. Cl2) is a yellowish green gas or liquified gas with pungent and suffocating odor. It is readily liquified by pressure applied at room temperature. It is among the top ten commodity chemicals in terms of capacity in the United States and it is mostly produced together with caustic soda by electrolysis of aqueous sodium chloride. There are other processes that do not produce caustic soda as electrolysis of hydrogen chloride. It is highly toxic and is classified as a pulmonary irritant. Chlorine is used as ring chlorination reagent and as water disinfectant.
