Molecular bromine container
« on: March 30, 2020, 09:30:01 PM »
I need to know which metal to use to build a tank that carries Br2 and the Reactions and calculations that underlie the choice of that metal.

This is a very dangerous question to ask. If you are storing large amounts of bromine please please please contact a consultant or professional company that specializes in this.

Strangers on internet are not sufficient due diligence.

There is no calculation for that. Corrosion is essentially experimental.

Possibly a protective layer, of ceramic, polymer or metal, is much cheaper than a plain metal that resists bromine.

You might search for a "compatibility list" that includes bromine, but gaseous bromine is very uncommon. Normal people would avoid it.

Or list the metals and few alloys reputed against corrosion and search which ones resist bromine. Data must be scarce.

If you know an industrial supplier of gaseous bromine, their documents should tell which metals to use.

surely if you have liquid Br2 you also have gaseous Br2 as it has such a low boiling point
