Preparation, gas chromatographic behavior, and spectroscopic properties of hydroxylated chlorobiphenyls. Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract Some useful methods for the preparation of chlorobiphenylols have been investigated. Twenty monohydroxy and dihydroxy derivatives of chlorobiphenyls are described; 10 are new compounds and several are known metabolic products from animals or microorganisms. The relationship between structure of the chlorobiphenylols and gas chromatographic retention time as well as electron capture detector response, including those of derivatives, has been examined. The ultraviolet, fluorescence, and mass spectra of these hydroxylated derivatives have also been examined with a view towards analysis and structure elucidation of metabolites.
