INTRODUCTION

2-Bromonitrobenzene is an aromatic compound and a pale-yellow powder that easily absorbs moisture. By virtue of its rather low melting point, it may appear as semi-liquid under high ambient temperatures. The nitro-group containing haloaromatic has numerous end-uses in pharmaceuticals, value-added intermediates, and other industry verticals.

Manufacture

Its production involves 2 steps:
First, 2-nitroaniline is diazotized in presence of cuprous bromide.
In the second step, excess copper salt is removed to yield 2-bromonitrobenzene.
Synonyms2-Nitrobromobenzene
2-Nitrophenyl bromide
CAS no.577-19-5

Structure

Applications in APIs
The aromatic is consumed in a process that results into diarylamino-1,3,5-triazine derivative, which in turn possesses anti-angiogenic activity.

Applications in Intermediate Syntheses
2-Bromonitrobenzene is consumed in synthesis of intermediate products such as:

N-methyl-N-(2-nitrphenyl)anthranilic acid
4-Methoxy-2-nitrodiphenyl ether
1-Methoxy-3,5-bis-(2-nitrophenoxy)benzene
1-(2-Nitrophenyl)piperidine
2-Aminodiphenylamine
2-Bromo-1,3-dinitrobenzene
