   I think the last pure bromide emulsion was Agfa Brovira.
I don't know what advantage a pure bromide emulsion has over
a chloro-bromide type. Nearly all paper manufacturers
abandoned papers with a single halide component in them
years ago. According to Kodak Azo is a pure chloride
emulsion but I am uncertain if the customer service people
know what is actually in the emulsion. I think the halide
used is secondary to other characteristics.
