Tribromophenol

2,4,6-Tribromophenol (TBP) is a brominated derivative of phenol. It is used as a fungicide, as a wood preservative, and an intermediate in the preparation of flame retardants. Although natural TBP has been identified in ocean sediments as a metabolite of marine fauna, the commercial product is prepared industrially. The predominant use of TBP is as an intermediate in the preparation of flame retardants such as brominated epoxy resins (BEO) TBP is reacted with sodium hydroxide to form the sodium salt, which is used as a fungicide and wood preservative.
