thanks for looking! so I need to figure out the chemical structure of bleach (NaOCl)
The balanced formula's here: 2NaOH+Cl2 --> NaCl+NaClO+H2O
The closest thing that I have right now is Cl-O-Na
Anyone have any clue?

Ugh, I had to help my oldest do that (before the internet). Took hours of library time. She is34 now and probably doesn't still have the info. Tough stuff there. Sorry.

What have you got to do, recreate a bleach molecule?

This is a little above me, but I'll give it a try...

I'll get back to you on that.. laugh thumbup

I don't remember much of my chemistry class. Only that I was usually lost and still managed to pass. nutz I wish I could help you but I don't even understand the question. shocked

Kenny, try www.webqc.org DD used it just last month to help with her chemistry. They have online calculators to help verify and balance your results.

Thanks everyone, the equation up there is balanced, I just need a diagram for the compound...I don't know what hypochlorite is (as in how many chlorines and whatever else) here's an example of water O-H-O
Tamara, I bookmarked the site laugh smile

Kennyso, I knew the equation was already balanced. I thought you wanted to verify if your answer was right or not.

I haven't had chemistry in 16 years but I think hypochlorite is Cl[O-].[Na+] I could be wrong though. laugh it's been too long out of school for me.

I skipped chemistry and went to physics instead.
Glad you found your answer. thumbup

water is H2O
or H-O-H in chemical bonding.

Sodium hypochlorite is NaClO
or Na-O-Cl in chemical bonding.

I had it backwards, told you it was too long out of school for me.
