Miscible with water, alcohol and organic solvents.


Hydrobromic acid is an indispensable raw material for organic intermediates, inorganic pharmaceuticals, photosensitive materials, dyes and medicines. It is also used in the production of bromine compounds. It is used as an important agent in the industrial processes of isomerization, polymerization, hydration and dehydration and esterification reactions. It plays an essential role for the extraction of mercury from the cinnebar ore.


Air and light sensitive. Incompatible with strong bases, strong oxidizing agents, ammonia, ozone, fluorine, potassium permanganate, amines, alcohols and metals.
