3-Bromotoluene was used in the precise determination of bromine isotope ratio in organic compounds by MC-ICPMS ( Multicollector-Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer). It undergoes palladium-catalyzed cyanation reaction in the presence of K4[Fe(CN)6] as the cyanide surrogate. It also undergoes palladium-catalyzed reaction with alkynyltriarylborates to yield trisubstituted alkenylboranes.
