Vinyl bromide is a simple vinyl halide. It is soluble in chloroform, ethanol, diethyl ether, acetone and benzene.



Vinyl bromide is used to manufacture bromopolymers and mainly polyvinyl bromide. Further it is used as an alkylation agent.

Safety precautions

Vinyl bromide is highly flammable liquid and reacts violently with oxidizers.

It is listed in List of IARC Group 2A carcinogens as a suspected human carcinogen.
