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
|White to off-white crystalline powder
|Assay (by GC)
|88.0 – 93.0

Cetylpyridinium chloride is the chloride salt form of cetylpyridinium, a quaternary ammonium with broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity. Upon topical administration, cetylpyridinium chloride is positively charged and reacts with the negatively charged microbial cell surfaces, thereby destroying the integrity of the cell membrane.
N2-Isobutyryl-2′-O-methyl-guanosine (IBG) is a modified nucleoside that has gained significant attention in recent years due to its potential therapeutic and industrial applications. IBG is a derivative of guanosine, a nucleoside that is a building block of RNA and DNA.
Trimethylaluminium belongs to class of organometallics. It is a highly reactive chemical and its solution in toluene is normally used to facilitate workability. Its general applications are in cross coupling and carboalumination reactions.
Octenidine dihydrochloride is a cationic surfactant, with a gemini-surfactant structure. Since 1987, it has been used primarily in Europe as an antiseptic prior to medical procedures, including on neonates. It is safe to handle and chemically stable.
Allyl Glycidyl Ether (AGE) is a multifunctional organic intermediate made from epichlorohydrin and allyl chloride and is featured by high functionality and low chlorine content. Since it has an epoxy group and an allyl group, AGE reacts with a wide range of compounds.
Liposomal iron involves encapsulating iron molecules within lipid bilayers. This encapsulation protects the iron from interactions with other compounds, enhance its stability, improve its bioavailability and low incidence of side effects.
Polyethylene glycols (PEG), also known as macrogols, are liquid or solid polymers of the general formula H(OCH2CH2)n OH, where n is greater or equal to four.
