ABSTRACT
Bromine, a chemical element. It is a heavy, reddish-brown liquid with a choking odor. (The name bromine comes from the Greek for "stench.") Bromine gives off a brown vapor that is extremely corrosive. The vapor is very irritating to the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose, and throat, and the liquid causes severe burns if spilled on the skin. Bromine belongs to the halogen family, which includes chlorine, fluorine, and iodine. It is the only nonmetallic element that is a liquid at ordinary temperatures and pressures.
