Chlorine Dioxide

Chlorine Dioxide

Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is a yellow to reddish-brown gas with a pungent odor. It is widely used for its disinfection and bleaching properties in water treatment, pulp and paper production, disinfection processes, chemical synthesis, and microbial control in the oil and gas industry. Chlorine dioxide is an effective disinfectant that does not produce harmful trihalomethanes (THMs) and is therefore favored for drinking water treatment.
