It also reacts violently with organic compounds such as ammonia and hydrogen, causing potential fire and explosion risks.

However, most chlorine is used in the chemical industry with typical applications including bleaching, paper mills (bleaching pulp), disinfection, water treatment plants, plastic production, medical supplies, pesticides, pigment dye, mineral ore refinement and metal processing. Moreover, urban drinking water which we use every day contains Chlorine as a disinfectant to eliminate bacteria.
