A colorless crystalline solid. Much denser than water and insoluble in water but soluble in chloroform and ethanol. Toxic by ingestion. Vapors are narcotic in high concentration. It is commonly employed as an electron acceptor in organic synthesis reactions. Carbon tetrabromide is also an efficient catalyst for regioselective ring opening of epoxides with alcohols.
It is made via bromination of methane using HBr or Br2. It can be also prepared by more economical reaction of tetrachloromethane with aluminium bromide at 100 °C.
CBr4 is used in a variety of industries
|It is used as a solvent for greases, waxes, and oils|
|In plastic and rubber industry for blowing and vulcanization|
|As a sedative for polymerization|
|As an intermediate in manufacturing of Perbromoethylene, Tribromobutylene oxide & agrochemicals|
|Due to its non-flammability, it is used as an ingredient in fire-resistant chemicals|
|It is used for separating minerals because of its high density|
|In combination with triphenylphosphine, CBr4 is used in the Appel reaction, which converts alcohols to alkyl bromides|
|As a transfer agent for the copolymerization of methyl methacrylate and p-divinylbenzene to form soluble crosslinked polymers|
|As a catalyst for the aerobic photooxidative synthesis of aromatic esters from benzyl alcohols under metal-free conditions|
|Bromination of adamantane and its derivatives in the presence of iron compounds as catalyst|

N-Acetyl-L-aspartic acid, abbreviated as NAA, is second most abundant molecule in nervous systems after amino acid glutamate. It is synthesized in brain from aspartic acid and acetyl co-enzyme A. It also acts as nutrient.
Pivaloyl chloride is a colorless to light yellow liquid with a pungent mustard-like odor. It hydrolyses in the presence of water.
Iron, Electrolytic, occurs as an amorphous, lusterless, gray-black powder. It is elemental iron obtained by electrode deposition. It is stable in dry air.
Hot melt polyamide adhesives are 100% non-volatile, thermoplastic adhesive resins. These are heat-resistance hot melt adhesive, suitable for bonding materials hard to bond together.
Boron citrate, usually called “boron”, is a micronutrient with diverse and vitally important roles in metabolism that render it necessary for plant, animal, and human health, and, possibly, as recent research suggests, for the evolution of life on Earth.
Ethone, chemically 1-(p-methoxyphenyl)-1-penten-3-one, is a flavor and fragrance ingredient. Available in white to yellow crystalline powder form, it bears sweet and anisolic taste.
Mercuric ammonium chloride, also called white precipitate, is a heavy white odourless amorphous compound used in external treatment of skin diseases and to destroy lice.
