# How does lithium react with bromine?

Aug 24, 2017

#### Answer:

Probably a redox reaction.....

#### Explanation:

...which we represent as....

$L i \left(s\right) + \frac{1}{2} B {r}_{2} \left(g\right) \rightarrow L i B r \left(s\right)$

Lithium is oxidized, and bromine is reduced. This is not a reaction that you are likely to do.
