Description

Potassium Bromide, also known as Bromide Salt of Potassium, and Hydrobromic Acid Potassium Salt, have the chemical formula BrK or KBr. It appears as odorless colorless crystals or white crystalline powder or white granular solid with a pungent bitter saline taste and is soluble in Water at ambient conditions. It can be produced by mixing and heating iron bromide with potassium carbonate. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of potassium oxide and hydrogen bromides. An ACS Grade reagent is a chemical that meets the purity requirements of the American Chemical Society (ACS). It is generally equivalent to the Analytical Reagent Grade. For dependable, consistent, and repeatable findings, ACS Grade reagents can be utilized in high- quality research labs. In the United States of America (USA), Lab Alley sells its high-quality Potassium Bromide, ACS Reagent Grade online at laballey.com.
