Chlorine Dioxide

Post  bejoy on Tue Nov 15, 2016 6:38 am

Chlorine dioxide is a chemical compound. As one of several oxides of chlorine, it is a potent and useful oxidizing agent used in water treatment and in bleaching. It is used in the electronics industry to clean circuit boards, in the oil industry to treat sulfides and to bleach textile and candles. Nowadays chlorine dioxide is used most often to bleach paper. It produces a clearer and stronger fiber than chlorine does. Chlorine dioxide has the advantage that it produces less harmful byproducts than chlorine. It can be used as oxidizer or disinfectant. It is a very strong oxidizer and it effectively kills pathogenic microorganisms such as fungi, bacteria and viruses. It also prevents and removes bio film. As a disinfectant and pesticide it is mainly used in liquid form. It can also be used against anthrax, because it is effective against spore-forming bacteria. Chlorine dioxide gas is used to sterilize medical and laboratory equipment, surfaces, rooms and tools. bit.ly 2f0kVSx
