Potassium bromide is an inorganic
salt that dissociates to its composite ions in aqueous solutions at
environmental pH and temperature. Comparison of the available data on
the various bromide salts have shown that the bromide ion is the
relevant ion for determination of the toxicological profile with simple
cations such as potassium, sodium or ammonium, that are ubiquitous in
nature, having little or no influence on the bromide ion properties. It
is therefore justified to read-across data from other inorganic bromide
salts to potassium bromide.
The in vitro bacterial
mutation test with potassium bromide was negative.
tests with sodium bromide were negative (in vitro bacterial
mutation test, in vitro mammalian cytogenetic test, in vitro Unscheduled
DNA Synthesis in mammalian cells).
on all these results, potassium bromide does not need to be classified
with regard to mutagenicity.
The substance is not mutagenic.
