TBBPA (a.k.a. Tetrabromobisphenol A) is a brominated compound with excellent flame retardant properties. It is produced by the bromination of bisphenol A, generally conducted in solvents, such as a halocarbon, a halocarbon and water, a halocarbon and 50% hydrobromic acid, or aqueous alkyl monoethers. TBBPA is mainly used to prepare fire-resistant polycarbonates. TBBPA has two hydroxyl groups, which can be reacted with epichlorohydrin under basic conditions to form diglycidyl ether, a compound widely used in epoxy resin formulations.
