Allyl bromide is used as an alkylating agent in the synthesis of pharmaceuticals, polymers, adhesives, perfumes, biochemicals and other allylic compounds. It is used as precursor for the preparation of allyliczinc bromide by reacting it with zinc. It is also used in the preparation of allylethers like allyl decyl ether, allyl benzyl ether and allyl geranyl ether. It is also used in the preparation of R enantiomer of allyl phenyl carbinol (APC) such as 1-phenyl-3-butene, which is a valuable intermediate for drugs and agro-chemicals.
