The demand for electrolytic caustic has glutted the chlorine market. Studies are underway looking towards the utilization of chlorine. It has been found that by passing chlorine through lime covered with water in the presence of iron or manganese as a catalyst that practically quantitative yields of oxygen are evolved. The method is believed to be commercially applicable for producing oxygen. It is also a superior method for laboratory demonstration and use.
