The proposed methodology was performed by means of the electrochemical oxidation reaction of bromide ions, in the chemical form of potassium bromide, by the activation of bromine-82. The results of the tests, with the radioactive material synthesized, show that the bromide ions were oxidized and fixed to the carbon chain of the lubricating oil by the halogenation process. Based on the results, the proposed methodology is feasible to produce bromine-82 radiotracer in organic phase for industrial use, with a yield of 57.94%.
