Hooker Chemical Company, was an American concern that produced chlor-alkali products from 1903 to 1968. In 1922, Hooker bought the S.Wander & Sonscompany for the retail sales of lye and chlorinated lime. Hooker Chemical is best known for the chemical waste site "Love Canal," which it sold in 1953, and led to a lengthy lawsuit several decades later.

The company located in Niagara Falls, NY noting the low cost electricity from the Niagara Falls power project (1895), the abundance of salt from nearby mines, and availability of water from the Niagara River. Hooker built a new chlor-alkali plant in Tacoma, WA in 1929. Additional products, including sodium sulfide, sodium sulfhydrate, sodium tetrasulfide, and aluminum chloride were produced there. Hooker Chemical Company was purchased by Occidental Petroleum Corporation in 1968.
