Acetyl Bromide is used as an acetylating agent in the synthesis of fine chemicals, agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals. It is also used as an intermediate for dyes. Further, it reacts with alcohols and amines to produce acetate esters and acetamides. In addition to this, it is involved in the synthetic process of the anti-HIV agent.
In the presence of ZnCl2, adds to a wide range of aldehydes, giving ɑ-bromoalkyl acetates: Helv. Chim Acta, 61, 2047, 2059, 2165 (1978); Synthesis, 593 (1978).
In combination with TFA, OH groups can be acetylated selectively in the presence of primary and secondary amines: J. Med. Chem., 16, 630 (1973); 17, 427 (1974); Synthesis, 249 (1975).
