Bismuth Bromide

Bismuth bromide (BiBr3), also known as bismuth tribromide or bismuth(III) bromide, is an inorganic chemical which appears in pure form as white-yellow crystals. For commercial use, this compound can be produced either through the direct reaction of bismuth oxide and hydrobromic acid, or through direct oxidation of bismuth in bromine.


Bismuth bromide largely shares its applications with other metal bromide compounds.

  • Water treatment. Like many metal bromides, bismuth bromide is of value in water treatment processes.
  • Chemical analysis. Bismuth bromide is often used in chemical analysis for similar reasons to its use in water treatment. High purity bismuth bromide often allows for higher precision and more value in a scientific setting.
  • Crystal growth. There are several commercial and academic applications for bismuth bromide pertaining to crystal growth. Notably, only high purity bismuth bromide compounds can be used for these processes; impurities render the material useless or unreliable in this application.
  • Optical properties. At ultra-high purities, bismuth bromide shows several unique optical properties. Like many compounds, it also shows unique optical properties at nanometer scales, making it of further academic interest.
