The answer is that the overall reaction is ClO- + I- --> IO-

How come Cl- isn't included with the products?

I believe this occurs because the reaction that produces Cl- is very slow, so that the reactions hardly forms an Cl- as products

I'm confused. My answer book does include Cl- in the products and I think that it definitely should be included. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think that being a product of the slow rate affects the fact that it is still a product.

I initially thought that Cl- should be included but the back of the textbook didn't include it and the question wasn't corrected in the Solution Manual Errors either, so I assumed that I was wrong. But if your answer book does include Cl- on the products then chemistry makes a lot more sense
