Description of key information

Bromine is an inorganic substance that does not contain a chemical group associated with explosivity.  In addition, an explosive substance or mixture is a solid or liquid substance or mixture of substances which is in itself capable by chemical reaction of producing gas at such a temperature and pressure and at such a speed as to cause damage to the surroundings. Bromine is an oxidizing agent and is known to react with other chemical agents in an explosive manner, but this property does not conform with the requirement for classification as an explosive substance.
