Hexavalent chromium from household chemicals
« on: October 15, 2022, 09:02:24 AM »
Hi!

I am wondering if it is possible that we accidentally make hexavalent chromium at home.
Does hexavalent chromium form, e.g. when we expose chromium coated materials to oxidizing agents like sodium hypochlorite?

I know this can happen when chromium coated materials are used as anode in electrolysis, but are common household oxidizers strong enough to form hexavalent chromium?

Also, is there an easy way to check for the presence of hexavalent chromium?

Thanks! :)

If chromium coated material react with household oxidisers maximum trivalent chromium is produced.so don't worry..
