ChromiumChromium is a chemical element with the symbol Cr and atomic number 24. It is the first element in group 6.
It is a steely-grey, lustrous, hard and brittle transition metal.
Chromium is also the main additive in stainless steel, to which it adds anti-corrosive properties.
Chromium is also highly valued as a metal that is able to be highly polished while resisting tarnishing. Polished chromium reflects almost 70% of the visible spectrum, with almost 90% of infrared light being reflected.
The name of the element is derived from the Greek word χρῶμα, chrōma, meaning color, because many chromium compounds are intensely colored.
Chromium is a naturally occurring element found in rocks, animals, plants, soil, and in volcanic dust and gases. Chromium is present in the environment in several different forms. The most common forms are chromium(0), chromium(III), and chromium(VI).
No taste or odor is associated with chromium compounds. Chromium(III) occurs naturally in the environment and is an essential nutrient.
Chromium(VI) and chromium(0) are generally produced by industrial processes.
The metal chromium, which is the chromium(0) form, is used for making steel. Chromium(VI) and chromium(III) are used for chrome plating, dyes and pigments, leather tanning, and wood preserving.

ChlorineThe chloride ion is the anion (negatively charged ion) Cl−.
It is formed when the element chlorine (a halogen) gains an electron or when a compound such as hydrogen chloride is dissolved in water or other polar solvents.
Chloride salts such as sodium chloride are often very soluble in water.It is an essential electrolyte located in all body fluids responsible for maintaining acid/base balance, transmitting nerve impulses and regulating fluid in and out of cells. Less frequently, the word chloride may also form part of the “common” name of chemical compounds in which one or more chlorine atoms are covalently bonded.
