Ammonium bromide is an inorganic compound with the molecular formula NH4Br. The appearance is colorless or white cubic crystalline powder, which can be prepared by the reaction of ammonia and hydrogen bromide. Soluble in water, alcohol, acetone, and slightly soluble in ether.
Ammonium bromide is slightly hygroscopic in air, with fluorine and chlorine replacement reaction. Primarily utilized for pharmaceutical sedatives, photographic sensitizers, and so on.
How it works:
Its bromide ion can enhance the restraint procedure of the cortex, create sedation, and restore the equilibrium between the cortical excitation as well as restraint procedure. It is quickly taken in by oral administration, and its circulation in the body coincides with that of chloride ions. It is excreted by the kidneys. Sodium chloride can raise its discharging rate.
