Chlorine is a chemical element that has a natural greenish yellow colour. Under standard conditions chlorine is a pale green gas. It has a pungent suffocating odour and is approximately 2.5 times as denser than air.

It is amongst the ten highest volume chemicals produced in the USA. Chlorine is not very flammable but may combine with other common elements to form potentially dangerous explosive compounds.

Chlorine has a vast number of uses. It is most commonly used to disinfect water. It is therefore extensively used in the treatment of sewage for industrial waste. It may also be used as a bleaching agent especially in the production of cloth and paper. Chlorine is also widely used in the preparation of chlorinated solvents, pesticides, polymers, refrigerants and synthetic rubbers.
