What is the Chemical Compound Formula for Sodium Hypochlorite (Bleach)

The chemical compound formula for sodium hypochlorite is NaOCl.

Reacting chlorine and sodium hydroxide will produce sodium hypochlorite:
Cl2 + 2NaOH = NaOCl + NaCl + H2O

Sodium Hypochlorite Production

Sodium Hypochlorite can be produced using either a batch production method, such as with the Powell Sodium Hypochlorite Batch System or in greater volumes using a continuous method.

Sodium Hypochlorite Batch Production System

Continuous production of sodium hypochlorite can be achieved with the Powell Continuous Sodium Hypochlorite Dry Liquid/Vapor System or with the Powell Continuous Sodium Hypochlorite System that uses wet vapor chlorine from electrolytic cells.
