Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Selective bromination of phenol and its derivatives and the bromination of ketones and alkenes have been achieved by oxybromination at ambient conditions catalysed by the mixed addenda heteropolyanion compound H5PMo 10V2O40, which is dissolved in nonpolar chlorohydrocarbon solvent by complexation with tetraglyme.
