Metal Free Synthetic Organic Dyes - 1st Edition
Bromination is one of the most important transformations in organic synthesis and can be carried out using bromine and many other bromo compounds. Use of molecular bromine in organic synthesis is well-known. However, due to the hazardous nature of bromine, enormous growth has been witnessed in the past several decades for the development of solid bromine carriers. This review outlines the use of bromine and different bromo-organic compounds in organic synthesis. The applications of bromine, a total of 107 bromo-organic compounds, 11 other brominating agents, and a few natural bromine sources were incorporated. The scope of these reagents for various organic transformations such as bromination, cohalogenation, oxidation, cyclization, ring-opening reactions, substitution, rearrangement, hydrolysis, catalysis, etc. has been described briefly to highlight important aspects of the bromo-organic compounds in organic synthesis.

Indranirekha Saikia was born in, Jorhat, Assam, India, in 1983. In 2004, she graduated from J. B. College, Dibrugarh University, majoring in chemistry, and received her master’s degree in 2006 from the same university with specialization in organic chemistry. She obtained her Ph.D. degree in organic chemistry from Gauhati University under the supervision of Dr. Prodeep Phukan in 2012. The main focus of her work is developing new synthetic routes using bromo-organic compounds. At present, Dr. Saikia is working as a Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) research associate at the North East Institute of Science and Technology (NEIST), Branch Laboratory, Itanagar, Naharlagun, Arunachal Pradesh, India.
Norbert Stock has received his Ph.D. degree in chemistry with Prof. Schnick in 1998 at the University of Bayreuth and has spent the next 15 months as a postdoc in the groups of Prof. Ferey, Prof. Cheetham, and Prof. Stucky at the University of Versailles and University of California at Santa Barbara. In 2000, he joined the group of Prof. Bein at the Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich, where he finished his habilitation in 2004. In the same year, he became Professor at the Institute of Inorganic Chemistry at the Christian-Albrechts-University in Kiel. His research interests are within the field of inorganic–organic hybrid compounds. He has been involved in the development and application of high-throughput methods for reactions under solvothermal conditions. Thus, he is interested in the discovery of new hybrid compounds, in understanding their formation, as well as in setting up synthesis–structure relationships.
