Iodine monobromide is used as an electrophile employed in a new synthetic approach to polyketide structural units. It is also used in iodometry and serves as a source of I+. It is a powerful iodinating agent used in organic synthesis as well as involved in the synthesis of radioiodinated fatty acids for heart imaging.
Selective brominating agent, considered to be intermediate in electrophilic power between bromine and iodine: J. Chem. Soc., 1509 (1939); J. Am. Chem. Soc., 60, 256 (1938); Chem. Commun., 849 (1968).
Also found to give higher diastereoselectivity than iodine in the cyclization of certain homoallylic carbonates: Tetrahedron Lett., 33, 6439 (1992).
