What is it about?

Bromination is a challenging task in organic synthesis. here we have summarized all the bromination reactions using various brominating agents. particularly we have also included the procedure which deals about catalytic free bromination reaction on aromatic compounds.

Why is it important?

This review article gives an idea about the bromination reactions and the efficiency of brominating agents under a single roof. The reader can make use of this for their future references. This article also provides the useful information about the role of catalysts, temperature, duration and medium of the reactions.


Writing this article was a great pleasure and very challenging to compile all the necessary things. This may very helpful for future researchers those who are interested to do research in the field of bromination. since, the brominated products plays vital role in medical field, it would has great attention in future.
