We are counted among most successful and professionally organized companies that lead as Cuprous Bromide manufacturer, supplier and exporter. This derivative of bromine is soluble in water and is manufactured by treating copper sulphate with hydrobromic acid and the reaction takes place in the presence of Sodium Bisulphate. We have been formulating this chemical in our highly sophisticated unit using latest technology. Our Cuprous Bromide is widely used in the synthesis of Organic Fine Chemicals.
Cuprous Bromide is a derivative of Bromine. Cuprous Bromide is soluble in water. Cuprous Bromide is a colorless to Pale Green coloured powder with
a melting point of 492oC. It should be stored in tightly closed containers in a Room Temperature. CAUTION ÃÆÃ¢Ã¢Ã¢â¬Å¡Ã¬Ã¢Ã¢â¬Ã â SENSITIVE TO LIGHT & AIR.
Synthesis / Manufacturing Process of Bromides:-
The major raw material of all the Bromides is Elemental Bromine. Bromine was first discovered in 1926. Bromine occurs in the form of Bromides in the
Sea Water & in Natural Brine deposits. Bromine brines are treated with Chlorine gas in presence of Air. During this process the Bromide anions are
oxidized to Bromine gas by the Chlorine gas. Bromine is further reacted with either Sulphur or Phosphorous & water to give Hydrobromic Acid, which is
the intermediate product in manufacturing of various Bromides.
Cuprous Bromide is manufactured by treating Copper Sulphate with Hydrobromic Acid in presence of Sodium Bisulphate.
