Description and uses: bromine’s main water soluble compound.
With chlorine gas or by electrolysis the bromide is converted to elemental bromine (Br2), a toxic dark red- brown liquid with an exceedingly pungent smell.
Potassium bromide is a precursor to potassium bromate (KBrO3), a very powerful oxidising agent.
In organic synthesis KBr is used to produce brominated species by acid-catalysed bromination of alcohols.
