Bromodichloromethane is a trihalomethane with formula CHBrCl2.
It has been formerly used as a flame retardant, solvent for fats and waxes and because of its high density for mineral separation. Now it is only used as a reagent or intermediate in organic chemistry.
It can also occur in municipally-treated drinking water as a by-product of the chlorine disinfection process.
