Up to date, it has been prepared by three prevailingly ineffective methods:
The method with the highest yield is reductive debromination of dibromofluoromethane using an organotin hydride.
Bromofluoromethane is an important reagent in the manufacture of intermediates, pharmaceuticals and other chemicals. Usage of bromofluoromethane is regulated due to its ozone depletion potential (0.73). Its isotopomer CH2Br18F contains fluorine-18 (18F) and is used in radiochemistry.
