In this paper, the biotransformation of fluorinated biphenyls by C. elegans was investigated by analysis of the culture supernatants with a variety of analytical techniques. 4-Fluorobiphenyl was principally transformed to 4-fluoro-4′-hydroxybiphenyl, but other mono- and dihydroxylated compounds were detected in organic extracts by gas chromatography–mass spectrometry. Additionally, fluorinated water-soluble products were detected by 19F NMR and were identified as sulphate and β-glucuronide conjugates. Other fluorobiphenyls (2-fluoro-, 4,4′-difluoro- and 2,3,4,5,6-pentafluoro-biphenyl) were catabolised by C. elegans, yielding mono- and dihydroxylated products, but phase II metabolites were detected from 4,4′-difluorobiphenyl only.||Funding Details:||Other funder||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Springer||Copyright (published version):||2009 Springer-Verlag||Keywords:||Fluorine; Biphenyl; Metabolism; F-19 NMR||Subject LCSH:||Fluorine
