The reaction of PBr3 with a gem diol?


Recommended Posts

Out of random curiosity, would it be possible to knock off the hydroxy groups of a gem diol and replacing them with bromines?


Granted, the reactivity of this new gem dihalide would probably much greater than the diol...


but under what conditions could one push the reaction to happen?
