General description

Cuprous bromide may be prepared by the reduction of cupric bromide or CuSO4-NaBr. In the molten state, it is grayish brown /greenish brown in color.

Application

Some reported applications of copper bromide are:
  • catalyst in cross coupling reactions.
  • co-catalyst in Sonogashira coupling.
  • Lewis acid in enantioselective addition of alkynes.
  • reducing agent, when complexed by three molecules of pyridine initiators for the controlled polymerization of styrene, methyl acrylate and methyl methacrylate.

Reductive homocoupling of α-bromo- α- chlorocarboxylates to dimethyl α, α′ dichlorosuccinate derivatives in presence of CuBr/LiOCH3 in methanol has been reported.

ARGET ATRP: Procedure for PMMA Polymer Brush Growth

We presents an article about ARGET ATRP, and its procedure for PMMA polymer brush growth. Surface preparation before polymer brush growth consists of two steps: surface cleaning and initiator monolayer deposition.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
