Purification

Micro-organical purification.

Water can also be purified at a low cost by the use of Chlorine which is highly electronegative and very active in the killing of microorganisms. These notwithstanding, some organisms have spores which might prevent them from intoxication by chlorine, in this case, Boiling is required which is not so effective but to a reasonable extent.
