Selective Bromination of Perylene Diimides under Mild Conditions

Good experimental, some modification to work-up


In this paper, selective bromination of perylene diimides is described. I was able to reproduce the bromination of 1a. However, the workup involves evaporating large volumes of bromine. I was able to isolate similar yields of products by quenching the reaction with sodium thiosulfate solution and extracting product with dichloromethane. The yields of the products typically depends on time and amount of bromine used.
