N-Bromosuccinimide as a Reagent for Bromine Addition


IT was first shown by Ziegler and co-workers1 that N-bromosuccinimide (XNBr) reacts with cyclohexene to give 3-bromocyclohexene (I) and succinimide. We have found that if the reaction is carried out in chloroform, benzene or petrol solution in the presence of salts such as tetraethylammonium bromide, tetraethylammonium iodide, or triethylamine hydrobromide… (More)
