- n. A colorless liquid, CHBr3, having an agreeable odor and sweetish taste. It is produced by the simultaneous action of bromine and caustic potash upon wood spirit, alcohol, or acetone, as also by certain other reactions. In composition it is the same as chloroform, with the substitution of bromine for chlorine. It is somewhat similar to chloroform in its effects.

The mixture is then heated on the water bath under a reflux condenser until the bromoform is completely decomposed.
The mixture is then distilled until the distillate is free from bromoform, halogen being tested for in the usual manner.
The condenser having been washed out with a little alcohol, in order to remove any traces of bromoform which may have collected, the distillate and washings are mixed with 50 c.c. of alcohol and sufficient solid caustic potash to make an approximately 10 per cent. solution.
It is imperative that the bromine used should be pure, as crude bromine frequently contains bromoform.
