1,3,5-Tribromobenzene is used as an intermediate for active pharmaceutical ingredient manufacturing. It acts as an intermediate for the preparation of 1,3,5-trimethoxytoluene. It forms molecular complexes with -and  fullerenes. Further, it is employed as an internal standard during derivatization step in the determination of cyanide in human plasma and urine by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. In addition to this, it reacts with the perfluoroalkenylzinc reagent in the presence of tetrakis(triphenylphosphine)palladium catalyst to yield a trifunctional monomer 1,3,5-tris(alfa, beta, beta-trifluorovinyl)benzene.
Soluble in hot ethanol and acetic acid. Insoluble in water.
Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.
