Calcium Hypochlorite

Calcium hypochlorite (molecular formula: Ca (ClO)2) is a kind of inorganic compound. It appears as a white granular solid with a chlorine odor. It is commonly used as a disinfectant, bleaching agent, and sanitizer due to its strong oxidizing properties.

Though it is relatively stable and non-combustible, it will accelerate the burning of combustible materials.

When dissolved in water, calcium hypochlorite releases hypochlorous acid (HOCl) and hypochlorite ions (OCl⁻), which are effective in killing bacteria, viruses, algae, and other microorganisms.
