    Does it matter what halogen carrier you use?

    So, if I wanted to react benzene with bromine, would I have to use a halogen carrier containing bromine (AlBr3 or FeBr3) or can I use one which contains chlorine?

    You can use either of AlBr3 or FeBr3 because they will both produce the positive electrophile Br^+ anyway.
