3-Ethylbiphenyl (CAS 5668-93-9) is Incompatible with Oxidizing Agents

3-Ethylbiphenyl (also known as 1-ethyl-3-phenylbenzene, 1,1'-biphenyl, 3-ethyl-, etc.) is a colorless liquid with the molecular formula C14H14; melting at -27 °C and boiling at 284 °C. It is stable under proper conditions; incompatible with oxidizing agents.

3-Ethylbiphenyl can be used as a strong base reagent. The compound is also applied in the preparation of arylalkanoic acids, in photography as electro photographic photoconductor. Sometimes the product is utilized in the process of separating water vapor from air.

3-Ethylbiphenyl also enjoys a wide range of patented uses. Thus, α-arylalkanoic acids are prepared by a method comprising the reaction of an alkylaromatic compound corresponding to the desired α-arylalkanoiс acid with a new metallation reagent solution containing 3-ethylbiphenyl.

Another invention relates to an electrophotographic photoconductor composed of an electroconductive support and a photoconductive layer formed thereon, which contains a charge generating material, a binder resin including a butyral resin containing a polyvinyl butyral resin component at a molar ratio of 68 mol % or more, a charge transporting material, and biphenyl or a biphenyl derivative (for example 3-ethylbiphenyl).

3-Ethylbiphenyl market is covered in the study 3-Ethylbiphenyl (CAS 5668-93-9) Market Research Report 2012. The report encompasses proper description of the product, unveils application areas, and briefly summarizes patents in the sphere. It overlooks 3-ethylbiphenyl market situation, names manufacturers, suppliers as well as users. The report also provides current 3-ethylbiphenyl prices in the market.

More information on the 3-ethylbiphenyl market can be found in the report “3-Ethylbiphenyl (CAS 5668-93-9) Market Research Report 2012”.
