5 mg/L is usually sufficient to kill most microorganisms with the exception of Bacillus anthracis and Entamoeba histolytica, which can withstand a concentration up to ten times higher. It works best at neutral pH. Chlorine reacts with water to form hypochlorous acid, which actually is the active form. With a few exceptions noted above, almost all microorganisms die within 30 minutes. Chlorine has a residual effect but its corrosive nature can harm sensitive components. Iodine and iodophors are useful antiseptics.
