Allyl Bromide from Allyl Alcohol without H2SO4?
« on: December 24, 2002, 02:10:00 AM »
Hi there,

Just wondering If Allyl Bromide can be made from Allyl Alcohol without using H2SO4.

I'm asking because I remember some bee suggesting it because he/she read it in one of their books.(sorry can't find the post).

Thanks,
Regards,
FF

Sure, PBr3 or Br2/redP are both suitable alternatives to 48% HBr(aq)/H2SO4. Plain 48% HBr(aq) should also work, but probably with lowered yield.
