Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Additional information

Bromide ions would be expected to partition to water rather than soils and sediments in the environment given their high water solubility (ca. 90 g per 100 ml for sodium bromide) and the negative charges on the ions.

A bioconcentration factor for sodium bromide in aquatic invertebrates has been determined experimentally to be 0.23 (Bartolomé al., 2005). In addition, a bioconcentration factor for aquatic organisms has been calculated, giving BCFfish = 1.41 L/kgwet fish (D. Carling, 2007). Given this data, it is considered that there is minimal risk of bioaccumulation and of secondary poisoning to the aquatic compartment.
