Calcium hypochlorite (Ca(OCl)₂) is a solid substance with a white crystalline appearance. It contains chlorine in a highly reactive form, and is made up of one calcium (Ca) atom and two hypochlorite (OCl-) ions. Calcium hypochlorite is mostly known for its ability to release chlorine when dissolved in water, which makes it a highly effective solution for eliminating bacteria, viruses, algae, and other microorganisms. It is widely used for water treatment, sanitation, and disinfection purposes.
