The principal uses of metal-chlorine compounds are summarised in Chapter 3. Chlorine oxygen acids and salts, sodium hypoch1orite and chlorite, the chloramines and chlorine dioxide are important b1eaching and disinfecting agents (Wojtowicz 1993a, Wojtowicz 1993b, Block 1993). Use of chlorine dioxide for pulp bleaching increased rapidly in the 1980s, partly in response to concems about disposal of effluents arising from eiemental chlorine use, and 1990 North American production, mainly destined for pulp b1eaching, was 561 kt.
