So far as we know, this is an elementary substance. It is a greenish, yellow gas, of a strong suffocating smell, and disagreeable taste: incapable of maintaining combustion and respiration, and very soluble in water. One of its characteristics is, that of destroying, almost immediately, all vegetable and animal colours. It is employed in fumigations as a powerful disinfecting agent. A very dilute solution. Aqua seu Liquor Chlo'rini, Chlorin'ii Liquor (Ph. D.), Chlorin'ei aqua (Ph. E.), Chlorine water, (F.) Chlore liquide, has been administered internally, in certain cases of diarrhoea and chronic dysentery. Immersion of the hands and arms in it has often removed itch and other cutaneous affections. It has also been inhaled in a dilute state in the early stage of phthisis, but it is of doubtful efficacy, and is better adapted for chronic bronchitis.
