An error was discovered in the curriculum where diatomic bromine was said to form a homogenous mixture with water. This is not true, since bromine only has slight solubility (0.33 mg/mL) with water. It is highly soluble in organic solvents like acetone.

For this reason, we replaced bromine with ethanol which is miscible with water. The student and teacher workbooks will be updated to reflect this change.
