General description

Bromochloromethane is a by-product of disinfection of water by chlorination. It has potential antimethanogenic activity and reduces rumen methane production in dairy goats.


Bromochloromethane was used in the synthesis and characterization of poly(methylene dicarboxylates).

The pulsed field ionization-photoelectron (PFI-PE) spectrum of bromochloromethane (CH2BrCl) in the region of 85,320-88,200 cm-1 has been measured using vacuum ultraviolet laser. The vibrational structure resolved in the PFI-PE spectrum was assigned based on ab initio quantum chemical calculations and...
