CHLORINE MOLECULES:
  • green spheres = chlorine (Cl) atoms drawn at approximately their covalent radius
  • yellow bubble = "surface" of the molecule created from the individual van der Waals surfaces

chlorine structure, Cl2: chlorine gas consists of two chlorine atoms covalently joined.

CHLORINE: is yellow green poisonous gas that is used extensively as a bleach and a disinfectant and in plastic production. Used as a chemical weapon in World War 1.

ELEMENT SYMBOL: Cl

ATOMIC NUMBER: 17

ATOMIC WEIGHT (relative atomic mass): 35.45

ORIGIN OF NAME: from the Greek chloros, meaning green
