The Discovery

In 1774 Chlorine was discovered by a man named Carl Wilhelm, he was a scheele. (Chemist from Swedin) He may have been the one to discovery Chlorine first, but that doesn't mean he was the first to realize it. He mixed the two elements Pyrolusite and Hydrochloric acid. Chlorine is put together with many elements so it's easy to get confused, he mistook this element for Oxygen. It was proven to be Chlorine in 1810 by a man named Sir Humphry Davy.
