Copper(II) bromide is used in photographic processing as an intensifier and as a brominating agent in organic synthesis. It is also used in the coupling of o-iodophenols and aryl acetylenes avoiding the use of palladium. It finds application in the preparation of NK1/NK2 receptor antagonists used in the regulation of tachykinin.
