Pentabromo-toluene is a brominated organic compound. It has the appearance of dark red crystals that are anisotropic in their structures, meaning they have different properties when viewed at different angles.

It is also known for its high electron density, which causes it to be highly reactive, and its redox properties enable it to donate or accept electrons.

It is commonly used in flame-retardant mixtures and is typically chosen due to its chlorine donor properties and low toxicity compared to other halogenated compounds.

It can also be used to synthesize pharmaceuticals, pesticides, and polymers to provide enhanced thermal stability. It has also been shown to be an excellent halogen donor, making it useful in cross-coupling vinyl halides and boronic acids.


Pentabromo-toluene is used as a flame retardant in textiles, plastics, and rubber products. It can resist unfavorable environmental conditions.  It can also resist the oxidation of many substances by thermal or catalytic oxidation to reduce fire hazards. 

Applications of it as pharmaceuticals are best for treating anthrax infections, bacteria resistant to penicillin, throat bacteria that cause laryngitis or bronchitis, and tuberculosis resistance to all other standard treatments. It can serve as a polymerization agent in the making of polyurethane foams and plastics.

It can also be used in laboratories when analyzing blood serum levels of Benztropine. Blood samples are treated with it to better detect the drug via liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS). 

It is an insecticide synthesized by reacting an aromatic ring with bromine, specifically for target pests. They are typically used to control soil pests like ants and termites.
