General description

Biphenyl (BP) is a p-polyphenyl containing two phenyl rings with a non-planar conformation. Its synthesis from benzene by intermolecular direct C-H homocoupling in the presence of palladium-containing catalytic system has been described. Stereochemical studies of its structure have been reported. The nitration of BP using 95% nitric acid to form mononitrobiphenyl isomers has been investigated.
