Well for starters, there is no such thing as a hypochlorate ion. Hypochlorite is [ce] ClO^{-} [/ce] and chlorate is [ce] ClO_{3}^{-} [/ce], but there is no hypochlorate. Ethylene glycol has the formula [ce] C_{2}H_{6}O_{2}[/ce] so polyethylene glycol is some multiple of that. The calcium ion is generally found in the +2 oxidation state.
