We have been running bromoetherification reactions using
cyclopentene, alcohols and N-bromosuccinimide. Works well,
except that we get dibromide as a byproduct, in addition to
the desired bromoether. Does anybody known of any
methods to suppress dibromide formation, other than jacking
up the amount of alcohol. Some of the alcohols we use are
expensive, and others are difficult to remove from the product.

All the Best,
