A Study of Mercury Dissolution in Aqueous Solutions of Sodium Hypochlorite

Abstract

Dissolution of mercury in aqueous solutions of sodium hypochlorite at pH 5.9–8.5, the corresponding reaction order, and the mechanism of this process were studied. The ratio of the rates of mercury oxidation and sodium hypochlorite decomposition was analyzed.
