Tetrameric DABCO™-Bromine: an Efficient and Versatile Reagent for Bromination of Various Organic Compounds
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 -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.
