Chemical Properties

Formula Weight
Melting point
Soluble in methanol, acetic acid, ethanol, n-butanol and terahydrofuran. Insoluble in water, carbon tetrachloride, ethyl bromide, benzene, toluene, ligroin, petroleum ether.


Pyridine hydrobromide perbromide is used as a brominating reagent in alfa-bromination and alfa-thiocyanation of ketones, phenols, unsaturated and aromatic ethers. It is used as a raw material in the preparation of beta-adrenergic blocking agents. Furthermore, it is used as an analytical reagent.


Store in cool place. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents and strong bases.

Literature References

Stable, crystalline, readily-handled source of bromine, useful for a wide range of brominations, including ɑ-bromination of ketones: J. Am. Chem. Soc., 70, 417 (1948), and conversion of alkenes to vic-dibromides. See, for example: Org. Synth. Coll., 5, 604 (1973), Note 2. The rate of addition to alkenes increases markedly on increased substitution, so that selective bromination of the more substituted of two double bonds can be achieved: Synthesis, 966 (1979).

In pyridine, cyclopentenones are converted directly to their ɑ-bromo derivatives (addition-elimination): Synth. Commun., 18, 1323 (1988).

Selective monobromination of anilines, predominantly at the para-position, can be effected in THF: Synth. Commun., 23, 855 (1993). In aqueous AcOH, alkyl aryl ethers are p-brominated in high yield: Synth. Commun., 28, 499 (1998), whereas aryl methyl ethers are demethylated on heating in xylene: Indian J. Chem., 33B, 288 (1994).
