How reaction can happen

Lead the chlorine gas in a glass of water, dip the litmus paper sample into the solution obtained


Chlorine water solution (Cl2) is yellow and green. Litmus paper turns red and decolored.

More information

The reaction of chlorine with water is in two opposite directions. Chlorine water is a compound of substances such as Cl2, HCl, HClO so it is yellow and green. Initially the acid make litmus paper turn red, but then it is decolored due to strong oxidation of HClO.

Oxidation-reduction reaction

An oxidation-reduction (redox) reaction is a type of chemical reaction that involves a transfer of electrons between two species. An oxidation-reduction reaction is any chemical reaction in which the oxidation number of a molecule, atom, or ion changes by gaining or losing an electron. Redox reactions are common and vital to some of the basic functions of life, including photosynthesis, respiration, combustion, and corrosion or rusting.
