Moreover, certain industrial chemicals, because of their life-threatening properties, might require license and precautions while dealing with them. Therefore Governments have strong measures to prevent non-lethal uses of chemicals. Nevertheless,  the circulated amount depends on its usage, and based on it, there are five chemicals that rank top in the hierarchy; they include wetting agents, calcium hydroxide, sodium hydroxide, sulphuric acid, and chlorine. This blog mentions 5 industrial chemicals and their usage. 

Wetting agents: Surfactants, commonly known as wetting agents, are used to reduce the surface tensions of liquids like water and oil so that the substance penetrates in properly. It allows better absorption and is used in detergents. They are also used to disperse the aqueous solutions of scented compounds and insoluble dyes.
