Subacute to chronic toxicity:
The toxicity of rubidium compounds is generally due to the anion. Rubidium has been reported to replace potassium in animals studies. Indications are that
overexposure could lead to muscle and red blood cell accumulation with possible neuromuscular effects, hyperirritablity and muscle spasms. No cases of industrial injury have been reported.
Inorganic bromides may produce depression, emaciation and in severe cases, psychosis and mental deterioration. Bromoderma, a bromide rash, often occurs when bromide inhalation or administration is prolonged. This rash is usually found on the face and resembles acne and furunculosis.
Subacute to chronic toxicity: No effects known.

About Rubidium Bromide

Bromide IonRubidium Bromide is generally immediately available in most volumes. High purity, submicron and nanopowder forms may be considered. Most metal bromide compounds are water soluble for uses in water treatment, chemical analysis and in ultra high purity for certain crystal growth applications. Bromide in an aqueous solution can be detected by adding carbon disulfide (CS2) and chlorine. American Elements produces to many standard grades when applicable, including Mil Spec (military grade); ACS, Reagent and Technical Grade; Food, Agricultural and Pharmaceutical Grade; Optical Grade, USP and EP/BP (European Pharmacopoeia/British Pharmacopoeia) and follows applicable ASTM testing standards. Typical and custom packaging is available. Additional technical, research and safety (MSDS) information is available as is a Reference Calculator for converting relevant units of measurement.
