A salt (NaOCl). formed, together with the
chloride, by the reaction between chlorine and
cold dilute sodium hydroxide. It is used as an
oxidizing agent in bleaching archival materials.
Its chlorine content, however, which is extremely
difficult to remove from the paper, makes it
detrimental to paper permanence.
