Aided by a consensus of member companies, methyl chloride was selected by CIIT as a commodity chemical which required comprehensive investigation of possible toxic and carcinogenic effects during chronic inhalation exposure in mammals. Such an investigation was planned and began with a ninety-day pilot study. The designs and results of this latter study are the subject of this report.
