Interesting Information:

Discovered by: Carl Wilhelm Scheele When it was discovered: 1774 It was named with the greek word chloros, which means light green. Chlorine gas is 2 times heavier than air Chlorine can be recognized by its choking odor, similar to the smell of bleach. Chlorine in not flammable, but may react explosively. Harmful to organisms living in water & soil. Member of the Halogen elements. It was first used as a poisonous gas during World War 1. Chlorine is very poisonous. Immediate health effects of Chlorine include: - Airway irritation - Wheezing -Difficulty breathing -Sore throat - Cough -Chest Tightness -Eye/Skin irritation Chlorine is used to kill harmful bacteria in swimming pools and water. (Both good and bad) Sodium and Chlorine make table salt.
