Full Answer

When not dissolved in water, hydrogen bromide is called anhydrous hydrogen bromide. It is a colorless gas with a sharp, irritating odor. When it is mixed with water, it dissolves to form hydrobromic acid, which consists of bromide ions (Br-) in a solution of H2O and H3O+. Because of its propensity to react with any available water to form a strong acid, anhydrous hydrogen bromide is a very corrosive and dangerous substance, and it is usually stored and shipped as a liquefied compressed gas.
