# Green chemistry in day-to-day life

Question:

Green chemistry in day-to-day life is in the use of:

1. Chlorine for bleaching of paper

2. Large amount of water alone for washing clothes

3. Tetrachloroethene for laundry

4. Liquified $\mathrm{CO}_{2}$ for dry cleaning of clothes

Correct Option: , 4

Solution:

Chlorine gas was used earlier for bleaching paper. These days, hydrogen peroxide $\left(\mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{O}_{2}\right)$ with suitable catalyst.

Tetra chlroroethene $\left(\mathrm{Cl}_{2} \mathrm{C}=\mathrm{CCl}_{2}\right)$ was earlier used as solvent for dry cleaning. The compound contaminates the ground water and is also a suspected carcinogen. Replacement of halogenated solvent by liquid $\mathrm{CO}_{2}$ will result in less harm to groundwater.

Hence given statement (4) is correct.
