Dibromochloromethane is a compound with formula CHBr2Cl. It is a trihalomethane.

Dibromochloromethane was formerly used as a flame retardant and as an intermediate in chemicals manufacturing. Today it is used only as a laboratory reagent.

Small quantities of dibromochloromethane are produced in ocean by algae.
