Question

Which ions formed from hypochlorous acid form the basis for the bleaching action of chlorine?


  1. ClO
  2. ClO+
  3. H+
  4. O


Solution

The correct option is B ClO+

Cl2+H2O HCl+HClO

The ClO ions formed from hypochlorous acid oxidize substances and this forms the basis for the bleaching action of chlorine.
