Bleaching Powder


The whitening/lightening process has been known for millennia, but the chemicals now used for removing the color from resulted from the work of (more than two, but not a lot of) 18th century scientists. Chlorine is the basis for the most common strong whitening chemicals: for example, the solution of sodium hypochlorite, which is so (existing everywhere) that most simply call it “(chemical that kills germs and removes color)”, and (silvery metal/important nutrient) hypochlorite, the active compound in “removing the color from powder”. Oxidizing removing the color from agents that do not contain chlorine are usually based on peroxides such as hydrogen peroxide, sodium percarbonate and sodium perborate. While most strong whitening chemicals are oxidizing agents, some are reducing agents such as sodium dithionite and sodium borohydride.

Bleaches are used as household chemicals to whiten clothes and remove stains and as disinfectants, mostly in the bathroom and kitchen. Many strong whitening chemicals have strong bactericidal properties, and are used for disinfecting and sterilizing and so are used in swimming pool (keeping things clean and disease-free) to control bacteria, viruses and (seaweed, etc.) and in any institution where (having no germs/unable to have children) conditions are needed. They are also used in many industrial processes, especially/famously in the removing the color from of wood pulp. (chemical that kills germs and removes color) is also used for removing mildew, killing weeds and increasing the long life of cut flowers.

Calcium hypochlorite is an inorganic compound with formula Ca(CIO)2 . It is the main active ingredient of commercial products called bleaching powder , chlorine powder , or chlorinated lime , used for water treatment and as a bleaching agent  [1] . This compound is relatively stable and has greater available chlorine than sodium hypochlorite ( liquid bleach ) [2] . It is a white solid , although commercial samples appear yellow . It strongly smells of chlorine , owing to its slow decomposition in moist air . It is not highly soluble in hard water , and is more preferably used in soft to medium-hard water . It has two forms : dry (anhydrous) ; and hydrated (hydrous).


Bleaching powder is commonly used to sanitize public swimming pools and disinfect drinking water . Generally the commercial substances are sold with a purity of 65% to 73% with other chemicals present , such as calcium chloride and calcium carbonate , resulting from the manufacturing process . as a swimming pool chemical , It is blended with other chemicals less often than other forms of chlorine , due to dangerous reactions with some common pool chemicals . In solution , calcium hypochlorite could be used as a general purpose sanitizer , but due to calcium residue , Bleaching powder is usually perferred .

Organic chemistry

Calcium hypochlorite is a general oxidizing agent and therefore finds some use in organic chemistry . For instance the compound is used to cleave glycols , a – hydroxy carboxylic acids and keto acids to yield fragmented aldehydes or carboxylic acid . Bleaching powder can also be used in the haloform reaction to manufacture chloroform .calcium hypochlorite can be used to oxidize thiol and sulfide byporducts in organic synthesis and thereby reduce their odour and make then safe to dispose of.

Color safe

Color safe (chemical that kills germs and removes color) is a chemical that uses hydrogen peroxide as the active ingredient (to help remove stains) rather than sodium hypochlorite or chlorine. It also has chemicals in it that help brighten colors. Hydrogen peroxide is also used for sterilization purposes and water treatment, but its disinfectant abilities may be limited due to the concentration in the colorsafe bleach solution as compared to other applications.
