The ability of Methylosinus trichosporium OB3b, expressing soluble methane monooxygenase, to oxidize a range of ortho-substituted biphenyls was examined to better understand how substituents affect both the rate and products of oxidation in comparison to biphenyl. Inhibition of oxidation was observed over the tested substrate range for both biphenyl and ortho-halogenated biphenyls (2-chloro-, 2-bromo-, and 2-iodobiphenyl). No inhibition was observed during the oxidation of 2-hydroxybiphenyl and… CONTINUE READING
