6NaOH ϩ 3Cl2 → NaClO3 ϩ 5NaCl ϩ 3H2O (4) Experience indicates that, with the final product, the temperature of 30ЊC should not be exceeded in order to limit the production of sodium chlorate. 5. A slight excess of NaOH also tends to protect the hypochlorite solution from the damaging effect of light. 86. 025% of the weight of the solution. 86, there is a more rapid decrease of the pH over time and a consequent faster decomposition of the NaOCl. 86, in as much as dilution lowers it. Electrolytic hypochlorite has a natural pH over 12 and, therefore, also exhibits excellent stability from this point of view.

Under the conditions employed in this study, using 194 subjects, there was no evidence of sensitization to Amu-Skin or to the vehicle. Sodium hypochlorite has been showed to be essentially non-irritating, and not an inhibitor of the wound healing process. Further, it has not shown any potential as a skin sensitizer. Therefore, sodium hypochlorite should be safe for the proposed indications at the proposed concentrations. Conclusions Many investigators have examined the potential toxic effects of sodium hypochlorite over the last 90 years of topical use.

In 1970, Madsen et al. [2] proposed the utilization of reverse osmosis (RO) for the treatment of the feeding water; this technique reduces the bacteria and endotoxins in the water. This technique is comparable to the demineralizators, which is less efficient in terms of ions. RO utilization spread and now all dialysis centers have one. RO was improved utilizing complementary systems as softeners and/or demineralizators, adopting a double osmosis system (biosmosis) and through a very accurate study of the hydraulic geometry and of the materials composing the distributing circuits.
