Uses of Hypochlorous acid: In organic synthesis, HCIO converts alkenes to chlorohydrins. In biology, hypochlorous acid is generated in activated neutrophils by myeloperoxidase-mediated peroxidation of chloride ions, and contributes to the destruction of bacteria. In water treatment, hypochlorous acid is the active sanitizer[citation needed] in hypochlorite-based products (e.g. used in swimming pools). In food service and water distribution, specialized equipment to generate weak solutions of HOCl from water and salt is sometimes used to generate adequate quantities of safe (unstable) disinfectant to treat food preparation surfaces and water supplies.
