Application

2-Bromoethanol can be used for the preparation of 2-bromoethyl glycosides from acetylated sugars. It can also be used as a starting material to synthesize 2-bromoethyl methoxymethyl ether.
2-Bromoethanol is used in selective reduction of nitroarenes (PcFe(II)/NaBH4/2-bromoethanol catalyst system).
