3-Bromo-2,2-bis(bromomethyl)propanol Chemical Properties,Usage,Production
Tribromoneopentanol is an brominated flame retardant, previously shown to be a multisite carcinogen in experimental animals.
Air & Water Reactions
Insoluble in water.
A brominated alcohol. Flammable and/or toxic gases are generated by the combination of alcohols with alkali metals, nitrides, and strong reducing agents. They react with oxoacids and carboxylic acids to form esters plus water. Oxidizing agents convert them to aldehydes or ketones. Alcohols exhibit both weak acid and weak base behavior. They may initiate the polymerization of isocyanates and epoxides.
