General description

2-Fluorobiphenyl is a white to off white powder. It is catabolized by C. elegans, yielding hydroxylated products. The metabolism of 2-fluorobiphenyl by hepatic microsomes isolated from control and aroclor 1254-treated rats and pigeons was studied.

Application

2-Fluorobiphenyl was used as an internal standard for analysis of environmental pollutants in sediments using pressurized liquid extraction and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. It was used to study the solvent dynamics of 1,2,4,5-tetracyanobenzene/biphenyl derivative radical ion pairs by picosecond absorption spectroscopy. It was also used as a sole carbon and energy source for the biphenyl-degrading bacterium Pseudomonas pseudoalcaligenes KF707.

The biphenyl-degrading bacterium Pseudomonas pseudoalcaligenes KF707 can use 2- and 4-fluorobiphenyl as sole carbon and energy sources. Accumulation of fluorinated catabolites was determined by fluorine-19 nuclear magnetic spectroscopy (19F NMR) and revealed that growth on 4-fluorobiphenyl yielded 4-fluorobenzoate and 4-fluoro-1,2-dihydro-1,2-dihydroxybenzoate
