The aim of this study is to calculate the experimental and theoretical the mass attenuation coefficient some Br compounds by using transmission method. Also using these values were determined the total electronic section, total atomic section, effective atomic number, effective electron density and Kerma. We performed the calculations of these values in attenuation by using direct excitation experimental geometry. The total attenuation cross sections of some halogene Br compounds were measured in a narrow beam good geometry using a high resolution Si(Li) detector in the energy with γ photons at 59.543 keV from Am-241 annular source. Theoretical mass attenuation coefficient values were computed from the XCOM data programme, based on mixture rule method. This study provide new insight into the literature since the values of effective atomic number, electron density and Kerma for some Br compounds have not been determined before. According to the results shown in mass attenuation coefficient, Zeff and Neff of Br compounds are closely associated with chemical structure. This research were undertaken to explore how Bromine compounds is gamma ray shielding material.
