Remarks:

1-BROMO-3-CHLOROPROPANE May be toxic by inhalation, ingestion or skin absorption. Used to make pharmaceuticals and other chemicals.

Application:

Used to make pharmaceuticals and other chemicals.
Uses
1-Bromo-3-chloropropane can be used safer and equally efficient alternative to chloroform as a phase-separation agent in the 1-step method of RNA isolation from biological samples such as animal and p lant tissue.
Uses
A replacement for CHCl3 in RNA phase separations

Using Procedure:

1-Bromo-3-chloropropane is virtually always produced by the free-radical addition of anhydrous hydrogen bromideto allyl chloride.
1-Bromo-3-chloropropane is a solvent that has been described as a less toxic replacement for chloroform in the liquid-phase separation and isolation of RNA from DNA and proteins. 1-Bromo-3-chloropropane is described to be efficacious in the single-step isolation of RNA from rat liver and various tissues, human placenta and human MCF-7 cells, and from bean and corn sprout plant material. No significant difference in RNA recovery was observed between chloroform and 1-Bromo-3-chloropropane as solvents in this process.
