Bromoform \Bro"mo*form\, n. [Bromine + formyl.] (Chem.)
   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. --Watts.
