Abstract

Organoboranes react with either bromine or bromine chloride in aqueous media to yield the corresponding alkyl bromides under surprisingly mild conditions. The reaction is ideal for the synthesis of functionally substituted organic bromides. Sodium bromide may be utilized as the bromine source via its in situ conversion to bromine chloride by using mild oxidizing agents.
