It yields a nitroso derivative, is nitrated by nitric acid to dilituric acid and brominated by bromine.
It is readily brominated and nitrated; when the nitration is carried out in the presence of sulphuric acid, the nitro-groups take up the meta position with regard to the amino-groups.
It is a colourless liquid having a faint smell resembling that of benzene and boiling at 84° C. In its chief properties it very much resembles benzene, being readily brominated, sulphonated, and nitrated; also, the side chains in the alkyl thiophens are readily oxidized to carboxyl groups.
brominated flame-retardants were found in three of the carpet samples  .
brominated flame retardants are a group of chemicals used to reduce the risk of items catching fire.
