Potassium fluoride solution is used for pH adjustment in industrial textile processing facilities or laundries. It is also an intermediate or raw material used in other chemical synthesis or processes, most often for agrichemical or pesticide products. Potassium fluoride is sold in an aqueous (water) solution.
Biphenyl is used in organic syntheses, heat transfer fluids, dye carriers, food preservatives, as an intermediate for polychlorinated biphenyls, and as a fungistat in the packaging of citrus fruits. In workers, acute (short-term) exposure to high levels of biphenyl has been observed to cause eye and skin irritation and toxic effects on the liver, kidneys, and central and peripheral nervous systems. Kidney effects have been observed in chronically (long-term) exposed animals. EPA has classified biphenyl as a Group D, not classifiable as to human carcinogenicity.
