SODIUM HYPOCLORITE (NaOCl)
It is a solution made from reacting chlorine with a sodium hydroxide solution. These two reactants are the major co-products from most chlor-alkali cells. Sodium hypochlorite, commonly referred to as bleach, has a variety of uses and is an excellent disinfectant/antimicrobial agent.
SULPHURIC ACID (H₂SO₄)
It is a colorless oily liquid. It is soluble in water with release of heat. It is corrosive to metals and tissue. It will char wood and most other organic matter on contact, but is unlikely to cause a fire.
NITRIC ACID (HNO₃)
It’s used in the manufacture of fertilizers, dyes, and explosives. Nitric acid is also used in the polymer industry.
OXALIC ACID (C2H2O4)
It is a dicarboxylic acid with a chemical formula C2H2O4. It is also known as Ethanedioic acid or Oxalic acid. This organic compound is found in many vegetables and plants. It is the simplest dicarboxylic acid with condensed formula HOOC-COOH and has an acidic strength greater than acetic acid.
CAUSTIC SODA (NaOH)
It is used as a cleansing agent and in the manufacturing of washing soda. Sometimes, sodium hydroxide is also used as a reagent in the laboratories. It is used in the preparation of soda lime. It is used in the extraction of aluminum by purifying bauxite.
