About the sample
This is a commercial sample from one of our laboratories. It is packed in an ampoule under an air atmosphere. The main reason for such a display is not to protect the bromine from the air, but to keep it closed. Otherwise, with time, it can diffuse through plastic and contaminate the surrounding. In addition, the ampoule is embedded in transparent epoxy resin.
