Sodium bromide is a salt which comes in form of a white solid, i.e. small crystals at standard conditions. Sodium bromide is one of the most commonly used bromides in the industry. This compound has been used historically in human and veterinary medicine as an anticonvulsant and a sedative, although it has been replaced by more effective substances. Sodium bromide is often used in the chemical industry and laboratories for the synthesis of various compounds. It is also used in photographic processing for the preparation of silver bromide. Sodium bromide is also used for treating water in swimming pools, due to its disinfective properties.

Sodium bromide can be obtained from stores that sell equipment and chemicals used in photographic processing. It can also be ordered from drugstores/pharmacies and from chemical selling companies, although mostly only in larger amounts. It can also be found as a product for treating water in swimming pools.
