This chapter illustrates the synthesis of the dibromides of various exocyclic α, β-unsaturated ketones and to study their chemical transformations. The chapter reports the reaction of such dibromides with azide nucleophile. Chalcone dibromides are advantageous intermediates for the preparation of various nitrogen-containing heterocycles. In the case of exocyclic α, β- unsaturated ketones, however, only few examples are known concerning the utilization of their dibromides for such purposes.
