Acid Bromide was found in 1826 by the French scientist named Antoine-Jérôme Balard in the deposits (bitterns) from the ocean salt at Montpellier. He freed the component through encountering chlorine through a watery concentration of the deposits, which included magnesium bromide. Refining of the Acid Bromide with sulfuric acid and manganese dioxide delivered red vapors, which dense to a dull fluid. The similitude of this technique to that for producing chlorine recommended to Balard that he had acquired another component like chlorine. Due to the terrible scent of the Acid Bromide, the scientists named it bromide, from the Greek- bromos, signifying "awful stench" or "smell." An uncommon component, bromine is discovered in nature scattered all through Earth's crust just in mixes as dissolvable and insoluble bromides.
