Aluminium Plus Bromine

By Anupum Pant

Aluminium reacts vigorously with Bromine. The reaction of a piece of aluminium put in Bromine is a spectacle to watch. Aluminium can be seen burning with a red flame and vapors of aluminum bromide (a solid at room temperature) can be seem going away. These vapors can be cooled on a surface for them to condense and coat the surface with solid aluminium bromide.
Here is the visually fun reaction, as seen on Chemtoddler’s channel on youtube.
