Energy efficiency in the sodium chlorate process: From electrocatalysis to pilot plant investigations

Sodium chlorate is an important industrial chemical produced through an electrochemical manufacturing process. The global production rate is 3.6 million tons annually and consumes approximately 20

Study of Hypochlorite Reduction Related to the Sodium Chlorate Process

AbstractReduction of hypochlorite is the most important side reaction in the sodium chlorate reactor leading to high energy losses. Today chromate is added to the reactor solution to minimize the

Understanding Selectivity in the Chlorate Process: A Step towards Efficient Hydrogen Production

Chlorate production is a highly energy demanding industrial process, where chlorate formation is accompanied with hydrogen formation on the cathode. To ensure a high cathodic current efficiency,

Chlorine Dioxide: Friend or Foe for Cell Biomolecules? A Chemical Approach

The influence of ClO2 on biomolecules is derived from its interference with redox processes, modifying the electrochemical balances in mitochondrial and cell membranes, which discourages its use on an individual basis and without specialized monitoring by health professionals.

Method for analysis of ClO2 and Cl2 air emissions from pulp mill

Abstract Chlorine dioxide is commonly used as a bleaching agent in kraft pulp mills. Scrubbers are required to remove any remaining ClO2 from the plant tail gases. To control the air emissions of

The Role of Chlorine Dioxide in the Electroreduction of Chlorates at Low pH

The specific features of the electroreduction of chlorates in strongly acidic aqueous solutions are studied by carrying out the electrolysis of 12.5 mM solution of sodium chlorate in 8 M sulfuric

Recent developments in the manufacture of chlorine dioxide

Fundamental studies on the kinetics of formation of chlorine dioxide have led to an hypothesis concerning the mechanism of the reactions involved. This has lead to improvements in the manufacture of


Sodium chlorite, a new commercial chemical, is now being used for bleaching textiles and paper pulp. It is a moderately strong oxidizing agent whose use does not introduce the possibility of heavy

Mechanism of the ClO2 generation from the H2O2‐HClO3 reaction

The development of chlorine containing species during the hydrogen peroxide-based chlorine dioxide generation process has been determined. Accordingly, two distinct phases, namely the induction

Reactions of chlorine dioxide with hydrocarbons: effects of activated carbon.

This paper presents a meta-historic review of the literature on determinants ofesticide Analytical Methodology dating back to the 1970s, which found clear trends in the use of x-ray diffraction analysis in the determination of pesticide purity.


The rates of oxygen evolution from carefully purified solutions of sodium hypochlorite have been measured. Methods of purification are described, and it is found that substantially the same rate is
