Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl) is a weak, unstable acid.
In the sratosphere, Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) is formed largely from reaction of hydroperoxyl radicals (HO2) with chlorine monoxide (ClO) radicals, and from the hydrolysis of chlorine nitrate on stratospheric aerosols. It is subject to quite rapid photolysis.
