Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Type of information:
other: Handbook data
Adequacy of study:
key study
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
data from handbook or collection of data
Handbook data considered to be from a trusted source acc. to "ECHA, Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment – Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance"
no guideline followed
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Not applicable - Handbook data
GLP compliance:
not specified
Type of method:
other: method unknown - handbook data
Boiling pt.:
1 502 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa
Remarks on result:
other: No atmospheric pressure was stated in the sources. It was thus assumed that the reported boiling point is valid at the standard atmospheric pressure of 1013 hPa.
Silver bromide has a boiling point at 1502 °C at standard atmospheric pressure.

Description of key information

In secondary literature (factual handbooks, chemical databases), the boiling point of silver bromide is reported as 1502°C or 1533°C. Other secondary sources report decomposition of silver bromide already at >700°C. However, the thermal behaviour at these high temperatures is of limited relevance for the chemical safety assessment. Thus, the boiling point from the CRC Handbook, which is considered reliable, is selected as the key value.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Boiling point at 101 325 Pa:
1 502 °C
