Bromomethane, commonly known as methyl bromide, is an organobromine compound with the formula CH3Br. This colorless, odorless, nonflammable gas is produced both industrially and, in particular, biologically. It has a tetrahedral shape and it is a recognized ozone-depleting chemical. It was used extensively as a pesticide until being phased out by most countries in the early 2000s.
