Our long market research and study help us to provide the best quality Potassium Bromide. Widely used in photographic films and pharmaceutical industry, this chemical is formulated using latest formulation techniques. In order to ensure safe delivery of these chemicals, our team of packaging experts stores these in tightly closed containers. In formulation process of this chemical, bromine brines are treated with chlorine gas in presence of air. Some attributes of our offered Potassium Bromide are as follows:
Potassium Bromide is a derivative of Bromine. Potassium Bromide is soluble in water. Potassium Bromide is a white crystalline powder with a melting point of 734oC. It should be stored in tightly closed containers in a Room Temperature.
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.
Potassium Bromide is manufactured by treating Potassium Hydroxide with Hydrobromic Acid.
