Volume 59, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0379-4350



Tetrameric DABCO™-bromine is a powerful brominating agent but shows reasonable selectivity with certain substrates. The selective bromination for activated aromatic compounds and alkenes is reported. Synthesis of α-bromo ketones and nitriles has also been achieved by using this reagent and the results are also reported. All products reported were obtained in good to excellent yields.
