Boron tribromide is used as a reactant for luminescent polystyrene derivatives with sterically protected carbazolylborane moieties, high-quality boron-doped graphene via Wurtz-type reductive coupling reaction and micrometer-sized organic molecule-DNA hybrid structures. It is also used in bromination and cyclization reactions to prepare cyclopenta[1,3]cyclopropa[1,2-b]pyrrolizin-8-one. It acts as a liquid boron source used in p-type deposition processes.
Reagent for cleavage of ethers: Synthesis, 249 (1983). Converts alcohols to alkyl bromides under mild conditions: Tetrahedron Lett., 35, 1051 (1994). Cleavage of N-methoxymethyl: Tetrahedron Lett., 42, 8633 (2001), or N-benzyl: Tetrahedron Lett., 45, 4093 (2004) protecting groups can also be achieved under mild conditions. Alkynes undergo bromoboration; the products can be transformed, e.g. to trisubstituted alkenes: Tetrahedron Lett., 29, 1811 (1988), or enyne-allenes: Tetrahedron Lett., 35, 1829 (1994).
