Abstract: Bromination of benzonorbornadiene (1) with sodium bromide in the presence of sodium perborate at room temperature gave only one product, the dibromide 2 produced via Wagner-Meerwein rearrangement. However, at high temperatures, bromination resulted predominantly in the formation of rearranged solvolytic products whose formation mechanisms are discussed.
Keywords: Bromination, benzonorbornadiene, high temperature bromination, sodium perborate.
