Br- The anion formed by bromine. It is found in solid bromides such as potassium bromide, KBr, as well as in aqueous solution. The test for the aqueous bromide ion is to add acidified silver nitrate and look for the appearance of a cream precipitate, AgBr. Silver bromide is heavily used as the photosensitive layer in photographic emulsions.
