Sodium Hypochlorite

CAS RN:7681-52-9

Range of Toxicity

A) TOXICITY: Significant caustic injury from household products is rare and is only likely to develop after large, deliberate ingestions by adults. Respiratory injury from evolved chlorine or chloramine gas is more likely to develop in closed spaces. A woman developed acute renal injury, intravascular hemolysis, and mild myocardial injury after injecting herself with 100 mL of Clorox(R) Lemon Fresh Bleach (1% to 5% sodium hypochlorite and 0.1% to 1% sodium hydroxide) through a tunneled catheter. She recovered following supportive care.
