Description of key information

Hydrogen bromide (HBr) is very soluble in water (Annex VII Section 7.7 Solubility in water)  forming hydrobromic acid which dissociates to ions (H+and Br-). It forms an an azeotropic mixture in water. A saturated solution is 66.5 % at 25 ºC. HBr in water acts as a strong mineral acid (i.e., hydrobromic acid) and dissociates readily to form hydrogen and bromide ions.
