Applications

Alkylation, bromination and isomerization catalyst in organic synthesis.Aluminum bromide acts as a strong Lewis acid and is used in Lewis acid-promoted reactions such as epoxide ring openings. It is used as a catalyst for Friedel-Crafts alkylation reaction. It also finds application in bromination and isomerization reactions in organic synthesis. It is also used in polymerization reaction to prepare poly(o-xylene)from benzocyclobutene.

Notes

Hygroscopic in nature. It is incompatible with aqueous solutions, alcohols and acids.
