Application

Bromoacetyl bromide can be used to convert:
  • Amines to azido acetamides.
  • p-Arsanilic acid to 4-(2-bromoacetylamino)benzenearsonic acid, a precursor to 4-(N-(S-penicillaminylacetyl)amino)phenylarsonous acid (PENAO), a metal-based drug.
  • 3,5-Dimethylphenol to 3,5-dimethylphenyl 2-bromoacetate.
  • Cystamine dihydrochloride to N,N′-bis(bromoacetyl) cystamine, a bifunctional quaternizing agent.

It can also be used as a reagent to synthesize imidazolium or piridinium based ionic liquids.
