2,3-Dibromo-1-propanol Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertiesclear colorless liquid
  • Chemical Properties2,3-Dibromo-1-propanol is a clear, colorless to slightly yellow thick liquid.
  • Uses2,3-Dibromo-1-propanol is a metabolite of the flame retardant tris(2,3-dibromopropyl) phosphate (T775560), previously shown to be a mutagen and carcinogen in experimental animals.
  • UsesThe major use of 2,3-dibromo-1-propanol is as an intermediate in the production of flame retardants, insecticides, and pharmaceuticals, and the chemical itself has been used as a flame retardant. 2,3-Dibromo-1-propanol was used in the production of tris(2,3-dibromopropyl) phosphate, a flame retardant used in children’s clothing and other products (HSDB 2009). Tris(2,3-dibromopropyl) phosphate was banned from use in sleepwear in 1977 by the Consumer Product Safety Commission after studies showed that it causedcancer in experimental animals (NTP 1993, HSDB 2009).
