Ammonium Bromide

TCC’s Ammonium Bromide, NH4Br, is the ammonium salt of hydrobromic acid. The chemical crystallizes into colorless prisms, possessing a saline taste. It sublimes on heating and is easily soluble in water. On exposure to air it gradually assumes a yellow color because of the oxidation of traces of bromide (Br) to bromine (Br2). Ammonium bromide is used for photography in films, plates and papers; in fireproofing of wood; in lithography and process engraving; in corrosion inhibitors; and in pharmaceutical preparations.
