CASRN: 3252-43-5

Formula: C2-H-Br2-N

Synonyms/Common Names

  • Dibromoacetonitrile

Known Uses

Formed as a result of the reaction of chlorine oxidizing compounds (e.g., chlorine gas, hypochlorous acid, and hypochlorite) with natural organic matter, particularly nitrogen-containing organic compounds, in water containing bromine; it is also a by-product of ozone disinfection.
