A convenient and economic way to produce anhydrous hydrogen bromide

Bromide promoted decompn. of tert-Bu bromide in the presence of triphenylphosphine gives, besides isobutene, hydrogen(triphenyl)phosphonium bromide. When heated to approx. 150 DegC in the presence of xylene, the latter salt liberates hydrogen bromide which may then be trapped in an aprotic solvent such as di-Et ether. [on SciFinder (R)]
