Applications
Benzhydryl bromide is a halogenated building block. Benzhydryl group was preferred to the commoner benzyl to protect 2-nitrophenol in the Bartoli (vinyl Grignard) synthesis of 7-hydroxyindole. Protection was by reaction with the phenol in the presence of potassium carbonate in acetone; deprotection of the indole was by hydrogenolysis.

Solubility
Insoluble in water.

Notes
Keep container tightly sealed. Store in cool, dry conditions in well sealed containers. Incompatible with oxidizing agents and bases. It is sensitive to moisture. Protect from humidity and water. Store under dry inert gas.
