Ethyl 3-bromopropionate is the organobromine compound with the formula BrCH2CH2CO2C2H5. It is a colorless liquid and an alkylating agent. It is prepared by the esterification of 3-bromopropionic acid.[1] Alternatively, it can be prepared by hydrobromination of ethyl acrylate, a reaction that proceeds in an anti-Markovnikov sense.[2]
