The paper describes information needed to evaluate the safety of chemicals proposed as smog suppressors and means for obtaining this information. Los Angeles and other large cities have frequent and severe smog conditions that result from photochemical reactions on atmospheric pollutants. Certain chemicals such as diethylhydroxylamine have been shown in the laboratory to interfere with this photochemical process and should, if released at the optimal time, place, and amount prior to or during smog conditions, significantly reduce or eliminate smog. It has been further argued by those favoring this approach to controlling smog that the cost of chemicals would be less than the cost of fitting automobiles with catalytic converters now used to reduce smog causing pollution. The test protocols and the information obtained from models described in this paper should provide adequate information needed to evaluate the safety of these chemicals for the uses proposed.
