Abstract Introduction: Sodium hypochlorite is used as a bleaching and disinfecting agent and is commonly found in household bleach. Objective: The objective is to review critically the epidemiology, mechanisms of toxicity, clinical features, diagnosis, and management of hypochlorite poisoning. Methods: PubMed was searched from January 1950 to June 2018 using the terms “Hypochlorite”, “Sodium Hypochlorite”, “Sodium Oxychloride”, “Hypochlorous Acid”, “Bleach”, “Chlorine Bleach”, in combination… 
A Case of Intravenous Suicide: Sodium Hypochlorite & Benzalkonium Chloride
TLDR
This study aims to present a rare suicide poisoning event and adverse clinical sequelae in a health Professional who was running a sport and beauty center and was discharged by recovering all systemic damages except permanent kidney damage.
Organizing Pneumonia After Exposure to Sodium Hypochlorite: A Case Report
TLDR
A 77-year-old male who presented to the hospital with nonproductive cough, myalgias, fever, and progressive weight loss after prolonged exposure to sodium hypochlorite is described.
Acute inhalation toxicity of aerosolized electrochemically generated solution of sodium hypochlorite.
TLDR
The studied electrochemically generated sodium hypochlorite solution under single inhalation exposure in aerosol form practically does not cause a toxic effect, and the data obtained allow classifying such solution to the 4th (or even 5th - after additional studies) class of toxicity in accordance with Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals.
Surviving Reactive Chlorine Stress: Responses of Gram-Negative Bacteria to Hypochlorous Acid
TLDR
This review summarizes the adaptive responses of Gram-negative bacteria to HOCl-induced stress and highlights the role of chaperone holdases as an immediate response toHOCl stress, and describes the three identified transcriptional regulators that specifically respond to HO Cl.
A cinnamaldehyde-based formulation as an alternative to sodium hypochlorite for post-harvest decontamination of citrus fruit
TLDR
PosFruit is a plant fortifier, residue-free, and efficient alternative to NaOCl for post-harvest decontamination of citrus fruit against X. citri, which indicates that the product has multi-target action.
The effect of ozone therapy in root canal disinfection: a systematic review.
TLDR
Overall the results demonstrated that ozone therapy provides significantly less microbial load reduction significantly lower than NaOCl, and ozone was ineffective in increasing the antimicrobial effect of NaO Cl.
In vitro inhibitory effects of commercial antiseptics and disinfectants on foodborne and environmental bacterial strains [version 1; peer review: 1 approved with reservations]
Background: Antibacterial agents, including disinfectants and antiseptics are commonly used to reduce bacterial loads. As they have a broad-spectrum of activity against bacteria, function either as a
Green detection of trace cyanuric acid and free chlorine together via ion chromatography

Chlorinated cyanurates (CCAs) are a type of disinfectants currently used worldwide for fight of Coronavirus. However, CCAs upon dosed into water can release not only free chlorine (FC), a strong
A Preliminary Study on the Selective Detection of Hypochlorite Based on Antiagregation of AuNPs
A preliminary study on the selective detection of hypochlorite using gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) has been carried out. Gold nanoparticles have been synthesized using sodium citrate as capping and

TLDR
All evidence presented confirms the normal safety profile of hypochlorite-based bleaches to be similar to that of other 'generally recognized as safe' household products.
Sodium Hypochlorite Accident: A Systematic Review
TLDR
A systematic review of previously published case reports is conducted to identify, synthesize, and present a critical analysis of the available data concerning NaOCl extrusions and proposes a template that can fulfill standardization objectives.
Poisoning with sodium hypochlorite solution. Report of a fatal case, supplemented with an experimental and clinico-epidemiological study.
TLDR
These studies indicate that 5, 10, and 15 ml of Klorin/kg body wt given to rats is highly toxic, and that local tissue damage and secondary systemic involvement develops with a severity corresponding to the amount administered.
Fatal ingestion of sodium hypochlorite bleach with associated hypernatremia and hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis.
TLDR
A 66-y-old female ingested an unknown quantity of regular CLOROX bleach and a second cardiac arrest resulted in death, and toxicologic analysis revealed meprobamate metabolites in the urine, and lidocaine in the blood.

TLDR
A 66-y-old female ingested an unknown quantity of regular CLOROX bleach and a second cardiac arrest resulted in death, and toxicologic analysis revealed meprobamate metabolites in the urine, and lidocaine in the blood.
Injection of sodium hypochlorite by intravenous drug users.
TLDR
A case of nontoxic intravenous bleach injection in an intravenous drug user attempting suicide is reported, and little is known about its parenteral toxicity.
Common Culprits in Childhood Poisoning
TLDR
Poison prevention efforts should also address the appropriate role of the poison information centre, and the use of child-resistant packaging and the secure storage of household substances are the basis of preventing unintentional exposures.
Chlorine inhalation: the big picture.
TLDR
In community pools, failure to reprime feeding lines with water after replacing and injecting chlorinating reactants may result in severe and large-scale chlorine exposures.
Chemical Burn Induced by Cutaneous Exposure to a Concentrated Sodium Hypochlorite and Alkyl Sulfate Solution
TLDR
The irritant effect of exposure to chemicals, including those that usually are not major irritants, and the possible additive effect of simultaneous exposure to different chemicals, should be considered in the differential diagnosis of acute dermatitis of unknown etiology.
