Antimony bromide (SbBr3), also known as antimony tribromide or antimony(III) bromide, typically appears in isolation as colorless or whitish-yellow crystals. The material is hygroscopic and caustic to flesh, making careful storage and handling a high priority.
Like many compounds of antimony, the majority of antimony bromide goes to a fire retarding applications. That said, it possesses a number of other commercial and academic applications.
- Fire retardant. Like many compounds of antimony, antimony bromide serves as an excellent fire retardant when added to other materials, formulated into a coating, etc.
- Chemical analysis. Some forms of chemical analysis use reactions with antimony bromide to determine the identity of unknown compounds.
- Chemical manufacturing. Antimony tribromide works well as a starting point for the production of many other antimony compounds. It also hydrolyzes to form hydrobromic acid and antimony(III) oxide.
- Dyeing. Antimony bromide can be utilized in dyeing as a mordant or dye fixative.
- Plastic manufacturing. SbBr3 is also often used as an additive in the production of polymers to improve fire resistance and import other benefits.
