  • Abstract

    Ethyl triphenylphosphonium tribromide (ETPPTB) has been synthesized and explored as an efficient reagent for bromination of organic compounds. The crystalline reagent has been found to be stable for months and acts as a safe source of bromine. Results show that the reagent shows efficiency as a brominating agent for various types of organic compounds thus proving it to be a note-worthy addition to the existing organic tribromide reagents.

    Keywords
