CAS Registry Number: 7778-54-3
Synonyms: Bleaching powder
Literature References: Improperly called "chloride of lime" or "calcium oxychloride". A relatively unstable chlorine carrier in solid form; a complex chemical compd of indefinite composition, presumably consisting of varying proportions of Ca(OCl)2, CaCl2, Ca(OH)2 and H2O in its molecular structure. Maximum available chlorine content approaches 39%. Commercial products usually range between 24% and 37% of available chlorine.
Properties: White or grayish-white powder; strong odor of chlorine. On exposure to air it becomes moist and rapidly decomposes. Most of it dissolves in water or alcohol. Keep dry and tightly closed.
