Methyl fluoride, or Freon 41, is a gas that has been investigated as an inhibitor of methanotrophy and nitrification in soils (Oremland & Culbertson, 1992) More recently, methyl fluoride metabolism has been investigated (Hyman et al., 1994).
The following is a text-format methyl fluoride pathway map. An organism which can initiate the pathway is given, but other organisms may also carry out later steps. Follow the links for more information on compounds or reactions. This map is also available in Graphic (3k) format.
