Make Ethyl Bromide (Bromoethane)
In this video we will be making Ethyl Bromide (Bromoethane) for use in the future. Halocarbons in general are potentially dangerous alkylating agents. Bromides are better alkylating agents than chlorides, thus exposure to EtBr should be minimized. EtBr is classified by the State of California as carcinogenic and a reproductive toxin.
