Abstract

The reaction of aqueous solutions of biphenyl and naphthalene with chlorine in the presence of potassium bromide resulted in the loss of organic substrate and the formation of a series of chlorinated and brominated products. The extent of the reaction in the presence of bromide was typically greater than with chlorine alone. Chloramine (pH >6.0) and chlorine dioxide (pH 4.5-7.5) in the presence or in the absence of bromide resulted in no substantial loss of biphenyl or naphthalene.
