About Bromides

Bromide Ion

Bromides are chemical compounds containing bromide, the anion of bromine with a -1 charge. The bromide form of any metal is generally soluble in water, and thus bromides are frequently used as soluble sources of the metals they contain.

Bromides are often used when the chloride or nitrate form of a given element is hazardous. This has become increasingly the case with the advent of new green chemistry and hazardous materials legislation such as the REACH program in the European Union. Neodymium Bromide (NdBr)For example, bromides are now being used in many catalytic, electronic, coating and biomedical applications in replacement of other soluble forms for this reason.

Bromide Products

American Elements manufactures multiple forms of bromide compounds including solutions, nanopowders, submicron, and -325 mesh powders, and high surface area materials with particle distribution and particle size controlled and certified. We also produce larger -40 mesh, -100 mesh, -200 mesh range sizes and <0.5 mm, 2 mm, 5 mm and other sizes of shot, granules, lump, flake and pieces. Purities include 99%, 99.9%, 99.99%, 99.999% and 99.9999% (2N, 3N, 4N, 5N and 6N).

American Elements maintains industrial scale production for all its bromides products and will execute Non-Disclosure or Confidentiality Agreements to protect customer know-how.
