Experiment #1 Bromine synthesis
I decided to try my hand at making some bromine for future reactions using acidified permanganate and bromide salts. The reaction went well, without a hitch, I got the bromine I needed not to mention some bromine water as a side product.
The only part that scared me was drying the bromine. I needed to use concentrated sulfuric acid and if the bromine was too wet it could have flash boiled, throwing bromine vapour and droplets everywhere and that would have been very bad (>_<).
