Chlorine is a yellowy green dense gas with a choking smell. Chlorine kills bacteria and is a disinfectant. It is used to treat drinking water and swimming pool water. It is also used to make hundreds of consumer products from paper to paints, and from textiles to insecticides. Chlorine is also used to make PVC; a very versatile plastic used in window frames, car interiors, electrical wiring insulation, water pipes, blood bags and vinyl flooring.
Another major use for chlorine is in organic chemistry. It is used as an oxidising agent and in substitution reactions. Chlorine gas is also is used as a disinfectant, microbicide and algicide in food processing systems, pulp and paper mill systems, and commercial and industrial water cooling systems. It is also used in washing meat, fresh produce and seeds to control decay-causing microorganisms.
