A chlorine dioxide tablet is a white colour tablet that releases a mild chlorine odor.  It is an effervescent tablet that diluted in water.  Since the tablet is placed in the water, hence the discharge chlorine dioxide gas is diluted in the water. The water diluted with chlorine dioxide will turn yellowish.  However, as a safety precaution, you have to avoid direct inhale of chlorine gas.  In general, handling of Chloride Dioxide tablet consider straight forward and simple.

Make up Working Solution for Chlorine dioxide

1 to3 dilution
1 to3 dilution

The yellowish colour of the chlorine dioxide solution should be further diluted before surface sanitizer purpose. Now you have the stock solution for chlorine dioxide solution.  The stock solution has to further dilute into a working solution before apply in the sanitizing process.  The stock solution should dilute in a 1:3 ratio, as such you will get a 20ppm concentration of chlorine dioxide working solution.  We have to immediately consume the solution after mix up.

The remaining chlorine dioxide tablet closed in a container with an appropriate label.  The container shall be kept in a ventilated area without direct sunlight and heat. The effervescent tablet will degrade and smash into tiny particle if get in contact with moisture.

Chlorine Dioxide solution is not favourable for long time. This osidation solution will degrade while in contact with UV light.  The Chlorine Dioxide shall dissociate into Chlorine and Oxygen gas.  In the application, the stock solution should be consumed within 1 day time to ensure acceptable disinfection strength. But it depends on the storage condition.
