Safety Information
2-Bromopropane Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertiescolourless liquid
  • UsesSynthesis of pharmaceuticals, dyes, other organics.
  • Health Hazard2-bromopropane, apparently caused ovarian failure, azoospermia, oligospermia, and anemia in a group of Korean workers. Experimental studies confirm specific reproductive effects in females and males. Hematopoietic effects and peripheral neuropathy also have been reported in animal studies. There is limited evidence of adverse effects in exposed workers similar to those seen in animals.
  • Safety ProfileModerately toxic by intraperitoneal route. A very flammable liquid and dangerous fire hazard. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of Br-. See also BROMIDES.
  • Purification MethodsWash the bromide with 95% H2SO4 (concentrated acid partially oxidised it) until a fresh portion of acid did not become coloured after several hours, then with water, aqueous NaHSO3, aqueous 10% Na2CO3 and again with water. (The H2SO4 can be replaced by conc HCl.) Prior to this treatment, isopropyl bromide has been purified by bubbling a stream of oxygen containing 5% ozone through it for 1hour, followed by shaking with 3% hydrogen peroxide solution, neutralising with aqueous Na2CO3, washing with distilled water and drying. Alternatively, it has been treated with elemental bromine and stored for 4 weeks, then extracted with aqueous NaHSO3 and dried with MgSO4. After the acid treatment, isopropyl bromide can be dried with Na2SO4, MgSO4 or CaH2, and fractionally distilled. [Beilstein 1 IV 208.]
