Hydrobromic Acid 48%
Formula:

HBr

CAS Number:
10035-10-6

General & Use:

Hydrobromic Acid (HBr), a strong acid in aqueous solution, is used as a source of bromine in industrial syntheses, including the production of alkyl and inorganic bromides. It is also used as a hydrobromination agent in a broad range of organic processes. Appearance – clear, colorless to yellow liquid, slowly darkening on exposure to air and light. Hereby, one may find a link to a detailed HBr Handbook addressing its safety aspects.
