Coffees of superior quality are those that have chemical compounds responsible for the flavor and aroma such as caffeine, trigonelline, aldehydes, furans, ketones, sugars, proteins, amino acids, pyrroles, pyridines, pyrazines, oxazoles, carboxylic acids, fatty acids, and phenolic compounds in an equilibrated proportion to obtain good body, acidity, and smoothness of the beverage.
The [alpha]-bromination of carbonyl compounds is an important reaction in organic synthesis since the resulting [alpha]-bromo compoundsserve as important precursors in the synthesis of variety of molecules, including biologically active compounds.[1-2]Phenacyl bromides are of particular important molecules because they are widely used as precursors of various pharmaceutically important heteroaromatics such as imidazoles, selenazoles, and oxazoles.[3-4]
