Chlorine donors in fireworks are a chlorine-rich compound when combined with a fuel within a pyrotechnic flame, certain colors can be produced or enriched. The following table can be used whenever we want to substitute one chlorine donor for another. In this case, we would use more of the weaker donor to account for the missing chlorine.

Common chlorine donors and their approximate chlorine contents:

Ammonium chloride – 65%
Ammonium perchlorate – 20%
Chlorowax – 30-70%
Dechlorane – 78%
