Wrong figure?[edit]

The reputable site www.epa.gov/ttn/atw/hlthef/chlorine.html has it that

"Chlorine has a suffocating odor; the odor threshold is 0.31 ppm"(7)

reference: (7) J.E. Amoore and E. Hautala. Odor as an aid to chemical safety: Odor thresholds compared with threshold limit values and volatilities for 214 industrial chemicals in air and water dilution. Journal of Applied Toxicology, 3(6):272-290. 1983.

Yet this page, perhaps a mistake with the decimal point, says it smell onyl at > 3ppm, out by x10. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 46.7.75.29 (talk) 09:48, 8 December 2013 (UTC)
