In addition to this, underground brines is used in iodine because they could be a potential source of rubidium, cesium, boron, or strontium.
Iodine is produced from sodium iodide solutions found in underground brines associated with petroleum and natural gas fields. Iodine is also made from subterranean brines. Furthermore, the United States produces iodine from sodium iodide solutions.
Furthermore, underground brines can be classified as chloride, sulfate, and hydrocarbonate. Among all three, only chloride brines, including sodium, calcium, and magnesium, are widely found.
