Abstract : Derivatives of perbromic acid of the formula: XBrO4 wherein X is Ag, (CH3)2CH, or (CH3)2C2H3 are prepared by a synthesis of silver perbromate through the reaction of dilute aqueous perbromic acid with silver oxide at a temperature from 0 to 50 C, followed by a removal of water and by a synthesis of isopropyl or isobutyl perbromate through the reaction of anhydrous silver perbromate suspended in a fluid selected from the class consisting of carbon tetrachloride, cyclohexane, and 1,1,2-trichlorotrifluoroethane with an alkyl bromide at a temperature from -25 to 0 C. Isopropyl and isobutyl perbromates are useful as oxidizing agents for alcohols. (Author)
