During UV irradiation of nitrobenzene and some derivatives in benzene solution biphenyls are formed as in the case of the corresponding iodobenzenes. Using fluorobenzene as a solvent, isomeric fluorobiphenyls (o, m, p) will be found as reaction products having a definite distribution (o >m > p), which is characteristic for substitution by radicals. Therefore, we conclude that the CN-bond is split homolytically. Besides the biphenyls, other important reaction products of the aromatic nitro compounds - phenols and nitrophenols - are identified

Keywords: Photochemistry; Aromatic Nitro Compounds; UV
