A binary compound of chlorine with another element or radical; as, chloride of sodium (common salt).
The compound of chlorine and another element.
It is one of the major anions found in water and wastewater. The recommended maximum contaminant level is 250 mg/L, since the chloride ion imparts a salty taste to the water. If ions of Calcium and Magnesium are present, the chloride ion may not impart a salty taste until over 1000 mg/L. In addition to human and animal waste, sources of chloride can include natural geological formations, road salt storage and applications, oil / natural base drilling, and saltwater intrusions. High levels of chloride can attack and weaken metallic piping and fixtures and inhibit the growth of vegetation. Chloride ion is detected using a titrametric or potentiometric method.
Often found in nature in a chemical compound called salt where chloride is chemically bound to a metal such as sodium. Chloride salts may cause abrasions or produce harmful chemical reactions such as those associated with bronze disease.
A compound of chlorine with one other positive element.
Good to know: The greatest source of chloride in the diet is table salt, or sodium chloride. Recommendations: Adult minimum: 750 milligrams/day. Benefits: Important for fluid balance in the body. Also important for digestion, since it is a component of hydrochloric acid found in the stomach. Food sources: Table salt, soy sauce, processed foods. Day's supply in: The recommended minimum amount is satisfied by a mere quarter-teaspoon of table salt. Watch out: No supplementation is necessary unless recommended by a physician. Too much table salt increases the risk of hypertension in susceptible individuals.
A compound that contains either the Cl- ion or chlorine with an oxidation state of -1, such as HCl.
Common anionic form of chlorine which carries one net negative charge. A common anion in many waters.
any compound containing a chlorine atom
any salt of hydrochloric acid (containing the chloride ion)
Chloride imparts a salty taste, and can indicate contamination from sea water, brackish water, or salt storage.
Chloride is an element important in maintaining pH and digestion in the stomach. Found in table salt and fish.
any of a group of chemical compounds which contain chlorine and a metal
Refers to the chloride ion which contributes to metallic corrosion and fluid mix instability.
Elemental compound, which in the Deicing industry, makes up most salts such as sodium chloride, calcium chloride or magnesium chloride.
An ion that imparts a sweet finish to beer.
an atom of salt that can be used to determine saline conditions in water and soils.
In association with sodium it occurs naturally as a very dilute salt in all water sources and is not removed during water treatment. The concentrations present in water do not present any risk to health. 400 mg/l
A form of the element chlorine. The chloride ion helps regulate acid-base balance and fluid balance; it's also a constituent of stomach acid.
One of the major anions commonly found in water and wastewater. Its presence is often determined by ion chromatographic or volumetric analysis. Consumers who drink water with concentrations of chloride exceeding a secondary maximum contaminant level of 250 milligrams per liter may notice a salty taste.
ions have important physiological roles. For instance, in the central nervous system the inhibitory action of glycine and some of the action of GABA relies on the entry of Clâˆ’ into specific neurons.
The major anion (negatively charged substance) in the blood and extracellular fluid (the body fluid that lies outside cells). Blood and other body fluids have almost the same concentration of chloride ion as sea water. The balance of chloride ion (Cl-) is closely regulated by the body. See the entire definition of Chloride
A molecule or compound that contains a chloride atom. Chloride ions increase etch rates in etching solutions.
An ion commonly found in waters. Together with sodium, composes table salt (sodium chloride).
Chloride is a chemical compound containing chlorine.
Chlorine in the chloride ion (Cl-) form has very different properties from chlorine gas (Cl2), which is used for disinfecting. The chloride ion (Cl-) in lake water is commonly considered an indicator of human activity. Agricultural chemicals, human and animal wastes, and road salt are the major sources of chloride in lake water.
The ionic, non-killing form of chlorine. When chlorine in water is reduced or is used up, it becomes chloride ion in water.
Recommended range is less than 250 mg/L. Chloride can cause corrosion above 250 mg/L and above 400 mg/L chloride causes an objectionable salty taste.
The anionic form of the element chlorine (Cl) that has a single negative charge as dissolved in water.
A component of many mineral salts, including common salt. It is involved in fluid balance and acid-base balance, and is part of the acid in the stomach.
A compound in which one of the elements is chlorine (sodium chloride â€” table salt â€” is the most common example); found in the body in large amounts. It is an electrolyte, thus is involved in water balance and acid-base balance. (Electrolytes affect movement of substances throughout the body and are crucial for normal function and metabolism.) To help determine electrolyte, fluid, kidney, and adrenal gland disorders, chloride levels usually are measured in blood, but also may be tested for in urine.
The chloride ion is formed when the element chlorine picks up one electron to form an anion (negatively-charged ion) Cl−. The salts of hydrochloric acid HCl contain chloride ions and can also be called chlorides. An example is table salt, which is sodium chloride with the chemical formula NaCl.
