Period: 4
Standard state (20 oC): liquid

Discovery: 1826 Antoine-Jerome Balard (FR)
Bromine was discovered by Antoine-Jerome Balard (FR) in 1826. The origin of the name comes from the Greek word bromos meaning stench. It is a reddish-brown liquid with suffocating, irritating fumes that gives off poisonous vapour. It is a oxidizer that causes severe burns. Bromine occurs in compounds in sea water. It was once used in large quantities to make a compound that removed lead compound build up in engines burning leaded gasoline. Now it is primarily used in dyes, disinfectants and photographic chemicals. The price of 99.8 % pure bromine liquid is 79.10 for 1000 g.
