Preparation of 2,4,6-tribromophenol

Preparation of 2,4,6-tribromophenol

Preparation of 2,4,6-tribromophenol

To a reaction flask 10 g of phenol dissolved in 200 ml of cold water are placed. From a dropping funnel 52 g of bromine in aqueous solution are added and reaction mixture is properly stirred. The precipitated white 2,4,6-tribromophenol is collected, washed with water, and recrystallized from dilute ethyl alcohol. 2,4,6-tribromophenol forms long slender needles melting at 95° C. Yield of 2,4,6-tribromophenol almost quantitative.
