Question

When the concentrated aqueous solution of substance X is electrolysed, then NaOH, Cl2 and H2 are produced. Name the substance X. What is the special name of this process?

Solution

Substance X, which gives sodium hydroxide, Cl2 and H2 upon electrolysis, is NaCl. The electrolysis of sodium chloride solution is called the chlor-alkali process because of the products formed, 'chlor' for chlorine and 'alkali' for sodium hydroxide (NaOH).

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
