Measuring Chlorine Dioxide and Sodium Chlorite

0.1% = 1,000 ppm = 1,000 units of chlorine dioxide within 1 million units

Chlorine dioxide concentration in liquid is usually measured in ppmW

= ppm (weight/weight) = number of weight units of chlorine dioxide within 1 million weight units of any types of molecules in a liquid solution

Chlorine dioxide concentration in air is usually measured in ppmV

= ppm (volume/volume) = number of volume units of chlorine dioxide within 1 million volume units of any types of molecules within a gas mixture
