2-Bromofluorene acts as a nonintrusive end-capping reagent in order to control molecular weights as well as in the generation of well-defined oligomers. It is used to prepare 2-bromo-9-cyclohepta-2,4,6-trienyl-9H-fluorene and 9,9-dihexylflorene. In addition to this, it is used in the preparation of poly(di-n-hexylfluorene)s end capped with 2-bromofluorene, 2-bromo-9,9-di-n-hexylfluorene and 9-bromoanthracene through Ni(0) mediated polymerization.
Soluble in chloroform and ethyl acetate.
Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.
