Chlorine is an incombustible, yellow-green, poisonous, suffocating smelling gas. It is very reactive. Pure, dry chlorine does not attack iron. Liquid chlorine is not water-miscible.
One litre of water dissolves only 14.5g of chlorine at 273K. In other words, approx. 4.5 litres of chlorine gas, at 293 K only 7.3g = 2.3 litres of chlorine gas.
Chlorine is mainly generated by electrolytic decomposition of sodium chloride or potassium chloride.
