1-Bromobenzene, is used as a general reagent in palladium-catalyzed reactions and in the synthesis of Grignard reagents. dissolved or suspended in cold aqueous mineral acid, is treated with sodium nitrite, a diazonium salt is formed. This diazo salt on treatment with cuprous bromide gives monobromobenzene. It has a molecular weight of 157.01 Da and chemical formula is C6H5Br. It has a high Boiling Point of 156.0°C and a very low melting point -30.6°C.
