Insoluble in water. Soluble in ether, chloroform and ethanol.


Carbon tetrabromide is widely utilized as a solvent for greases, waxes and oils. In Appel reaction, it is used to convert alcohols to alkyl bromides. It has the property of non-flammability and finds application in fire-resistant chemicals as an active ingredient. It is also used for separating minerals. It can serves as an intermediate in manufacturing agrochemicals. It plays a vital role in the plastic and rubber industries for blowing and vulcanization.


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


Brominating agent for Li ester enolates, where bromine tends to give erratic results: J. Org. Chem., 43, 3687 (1978). Exchange reaction with n-BuLi or PhLi in ether at -111o generates tribromomethyllithium, giving 91% yield on carbonation: Chem. Ber., 101, 3230 (1968).

In combination with triphenylphosphine, effects the dibromomethylenation of aldehydes to 1,1-dibromoalkenes: J. Am. Chem. Soc., 84, 1745 (1962). Dehydrobromination of the products with n-BuLi provides a valuable aldehyde to alkyne homologation: Tetrahedron Lett., 3769 (1972); 31, 3141 (1990). An improved procedure, suitable for sensitive aldehydes, has been described using triethylamine in the dibromomethylenation step to suppress side reactions, and the hindered base sodium bis(trimethylsilylamide) (NaHMDS) for the elimination step: Tetrahedron Lett., 35, 3529 (1994); Synth. Commun., 25, 3641 (1995):

Also frequently used in combination with triphenylphosphine for the conversion of alcohols to alkyl bromides under mild conditions, applicable to sensitive substrates such as allylic or carbohydrate molecules: Chem. Ind. (London), 1017 (1969); J. Org. Chem., 36, 403 (1971); Synth. Commun., 24, 1117 (1994).
