Bromine

CAS RN: 7726-95-6

Volatilization

The Henry's Law constant for bromine is 1.32X10-3 atm-cu m/mole(1). This Henry's Law constant indicates that bromine is expected to volatilize rapidly from water surfaces(2). Based on this Henry's Law constant, the volatilization half-life from a model river (1 m deep, flowing 1 m/sec, wind velocity of 3 m/sec)(2) is estimated as 4.5 hours(SRC). The volatilization half-life from a model lake (1 m deep, flowing 0.05 m/sec, wind velocity of 0.5 m/sec)(2) is estimated as 5 days(SRC). Bromine's Henry's Law constant indicates that volatilization from moist soil surfaces may occur(SRC). Bromine is expected to volatilize from dry soil surfaces(SRC) based upon a vapor pressure of 212 mm Hg at 25 deg C(3). Bromine is reported to vaporize rapidly at room temperature(4).
