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.

Neodymium Bromide (NdBr)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.For example, bromides are now being used in many catalytic, electronic, coating and biomedical applications in replacement of other soluble forms for this reason.
