Acetyl bromide, also known as bromoacetone or ethanoyl bromide, is an organic compound that is commonly used as a reagent in organic synthesis. It is also used in the production of pharmaceuticals, pesticides, and other chemicals.
When exposed to acetyl bromide, rubber may become susceptible to swelling and softening, leading to deformation and cracking. This is due to the chemical's ability to break down the rubber's cross-linking structure. In addition, the chemical's corrosive properties may also lead to premature aging of the rubber, resulting in reduced tensile strength and increased brittleness.
