This report updates available data from 1978 - 1980 on 23 halogenated hydrocarbons (HHC's) identified as environmental pollutants and potential health hazards, including two chemicals not covered in the earlier reports. Included is information on the uptake and retention of the compounds, their subsequent distribution and elimination patterns, the identification and observed concentrations of metabolites, and the metabolic pathways involved. This report includes, as an appendix, a tabular summary of the experimental data reported.
