Classification Code of Chlorobromomethane (CAS NO.74-97-5): Drug / Therapeutic Agent; Mutation data; TSCA Flag T [Subject to the Section 4 test rule under TSCA] 


  Chlorobromomethane (CAS NO.74-97-5) was invented for use in fire extinguishers by the Germans during the mid-40s, in an attempt to create a less-toxic, more effective alternative to carbon tetrachloride. This was a concern in aircraft and tanks as carbon tetrachloride produced highly toxic by-products when discharged onto a fire. CBM was slightly less toxic, and used up until the late 1960s, being officially banned by the NFPA for use in fire extinguishers in 1969, as safer and more effective agents such as halon 1211 and 1301 were developed.

Safety Profile

Mildly toxic by ingestion and inhalation. Mutation data reported. This material has a narcotic action of moderate intensity, although of prolonged duration. Animals exposed for several weeks to 1000 ppm had blood bromide levels as high as 350 mg/100 g. Therefore, until further data are available, it should be considered at least as toxic as carbon tetrachloride and more than minimal exposure to its vapors should be avoided. Dangerous; when heated to decomposition it emits highly toxic fumes of Br and Cl.
