Sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) is the most widely used disinfectant in the food industry despite the increasing availability of other disinfectants. Sodium hypochlorite fulfills many requirements as the ideal disinfectant and furthermore it has an excellent cleaning action. The effectiveness of sodium hypochlorite in the cleaning and disinfection processes depends on the concentration of available chlorine and the pH of the solution. Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is a weak acid and dissociates to the… Expand

The mode of action of sodium hypochlorite in the decolorization of azo dye orange II in aqueous solution.
TLDR
It could be concluded that controlling the solution pH and the OCl(-) concentration was indeed a key factor determining the rate of decolorization of orange II in aqueous solution. Expand
INFLUENCE OF SODIUM HYPOCHLORITE ON THE ANAEROBIC TREATMENT OF BROWN WATER
Effluent separation at the origin (brown water (BW), gray water and yellow water) improves sewage treatments. However, the BW can contain disinfectants such as sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl). ThisExpand
Reinvestigation of membrane cleaning mechanisms using NaOCl: Role of reagent diffusion
Abstract Sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) is a widely used cleaning reagent for membrane separation processes to recover membrane permeability; however, the competitive interactions of different chlorineExpand

Experimental Investigation on Hypochlorous Acid Water Production using Electrode Plates without a Barrier Membrane ( Part I : Production conditions for high-concentration Hypochlorous acid water )
Available chlorine has been widely used for the sterilization and disinfection of the tap water supply. The development of a device is awaited which will enable the generation of available chlorineExpand
Tribological behavior of polyacetal composite lubricated in sodium hypochlorite solution
Abstract Sodium hypochlorite (NaClO) solution is the most widely used disinfectant in the food industry. If NaClO solution can be used as a lubricant, the maintenance cost is reduced and the foodExpand
Formation of chlorinated disinfection by-products in viticulture
TLDR
The results indicate that HYP has a high potential to form AOX in effluents of viticulture and it was demonstrated that reaction temperature, concentration of HYP and type of organic matter have important influence on the formation of chlorinated DBPs. Expand

The Mode of Action of Sodium Hypochlorite in the Cleaning Process
The action of sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) solution in the cleaning of alumina (Al2O3) particles fouled with bovine serum albumin (BSA) or pectin was studied as a function of pH. The efficacy of NaOClExpand
Uses of inorganic hypochlorite (bleach) in health-care facilities.
TLDR
Clinical uses in health-care facilities include hyperchlorination of potable water to prevent Legionella colonization, chlorination of water distribution systems used in hemodialysis centers, cleaning of environmental surfaces, disinfection of laundry, local use to decontaminate blood spills, disinfections of equipment, decontamination of medical waste prior to disposal, and dental therapy.

Some Observations on the Germicidal Efficiency of Chloramine-T and Calcium Hypochlorite
TLDR
The authors' primary object was to obtain information on the effect of temperature, reaction (pH) and concentration on the germicidal efficiency of some chlorine compounds. Expand
Decontamination of lettuce using acidic electrolyzed water.
TLDR
It was confirmed by swabbing test that AcEW, ozonated water, and NaOCI solution removed aerobic bacteria, coliform bacteria, molds, and yeasts on the surface of lettuce, and residual microorganisms after the decontamination of lettuce were either in the inside of the cellular tissue, such as the stomata, or making biofilm on thesurface of lettuce.

TLDR
It was obtained that, in disinfection with mercuric chloride, a toxic compound is formed between the metal and the substance of the bacterial cell, which prevents all further growth, but vitality can be restored by the administration of a large excess of soluble sulphide as an antidote. Expand
Effect of pH on sporicidal and microbicidal activity of buffered mixtures of alcohol and sodium hypochlorite.
TLDR
High sporicidal activity can be achieved with low concentrations of alcohol and hypochlorite with promise for the disinfection of heat-sensitive medical equipment by buffering alcohol/hypochlorites mixtures or hypoch chlorite solution alone in the pH range 7.6--8.1. Expand
Chlorine Disinfection of Atypical Mycobacteria Isolated from a Water Distribution System
TLDR
The results show that M. gordonae is more resistant to chlorine in low-nutrient media, such as those encountered in water, and that an increase in temperature and a decrease in pH result in better inactivation. Expand
Sporicidal properties of some halogens.
TLDR
Under the test conditions used sodium hypochlorite was the most effective compound and dibromodimethyl hydantoin was least affected by increase in pH from 6.5 to 8; the activity of the iodophor was unaffected in the pH range 2.3–6.5. Expand
