2-Bromoethanol Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical Properties

colourless liquid


2-Bromoethanol is used in selective reduction of nitroarenes (PcFe(II)/NaBH4/2-bromoethanol catalyst system).


Ethylene bromohydrin is not used much forany commercial purpose. The risk of expo sure to this compound arises when ethyleneoxide reacts with hydrobromic acid.

General Description

Colorless to dark brown liquid. Sweet burning taste.

Air & Water Reactions

Hygroscopic. Water soluble.

Reactivity Profile

2-Bromoethanol forms an azeotrope with water; hydrolysis of aqueous solutions is accelerated by heat, alkalis and acids.


Irritant to eyes and mucous membranes.

Health Hazard

The vapors of ethylene bromohydrin are anirritant to the eyes and mucous membranes.It is corrosive to the skin. Ingestion of thiscompound can produce moderate to severetoxic effects. The target organs are the CNS,gastrointestinal tract, and liver. The lethaldose in mice by the intraperitoneal route was80 mg/kg.
Ethylene bromohydrin manifested car cinogenicity in test animals. It caused tumorsin lungs and the gastrointestinal tract in micefrom intraperitoneal (150 mg/kg/8 weeks)and oral (43 mg/kg/80 weeks) dosages,respectively. It is a mutagen, positive to thehistidine reversion–Ames test.

Fire Hazard

2-Bromoethanol is combustible.

Safety Profile

Poison by intraperitoneal route. Questionable carcinogen with experimental neoplastigenic and tumorigenic data. Mutation data reported. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of Br-. See also

Waste Disposal

Ethylene bromohydrin is mixed with a combustible solvent and burned in a chemicalincinerator.
