Strontium bromate is a rarely considered chemical in the laboratory or in industries. It is, however, mentioned in the book Uncle Tungsten: Memories of a Chemical Boyhood by Oliver Sacks. There it is said that this salt glows when crystallizes from a saturated aqueous solution. Chemically this salt is soluble in water, and is a moderately strong oxidizing agent.[1] It is also toxic if ingested and irritates the skin and respiratory tract if come into contact with or inhaled, respectively. Its chemical formula is Sr(BrO3)2.
