Mix the bromine and potassium bromide in a glass-stoppered bottle graduated to hold 100 (20 fluid ounces); gradually, and with constant shaking, add sufficient distilled water to produce the required volume. The product is a dark brownish-red liquid with a disagreeable, irritating and suffocating odour. An equivalent quantity of this solution may be used in place of bromine in making sodium hypobromite solution for urea determinations.
