A salt which is obtained from hydrobromic acid, bromide of iron, &c., by similar processes to those adopted for the iodide.
hydrobromic acid is also employed as an hypnotic in certain cases.
The hypnotic dose of hydrobromic acid is twenty-five grains, largely diluted with sweetened water.
It may also be prepared by oxidizing the trimethylene glycol obtained by the action of hydrobromic acid on allylbromide.
It forms addition products with bromine and hydrobromic acid.
Bromine reacts with violence, a gas again being explosively evolved and hydrobromic acid formed.
hydrobromic acid very strikingly resembles hydrochloric acid in physical and chemical properties.
The alkaloid also forms deliquescent very soluble salts with hydrochloric and hydrobromic acids.
As in the case of chlorine, bromine can be prepared by the action of hydrobromic acid (HBr) on manganese dioxide.
hydrobromic acid gas is colourless and non-inflammable; it extinguishes flame.
