||Earlier studies from the Haskell Laboratory on the toxicity of the pyrolysis products of 'Teflon' polytetrafluoroethylene resin were reported in 1952 and 1956. The present studies are concerned with: (1) a more extensive investigation of two of the pyrolysis products studied previously, i.e., perfluoroisobutylene and hexafluoropropylcue; (2) a preliminary investigation of the toxicity of carbonyl fluoride; (5) investigation of the toxicity on pyrolysis of various experimental and commercial 'Teflon' samples; and (6) investigation of the toxicity on pyrolysis of two competitive fluorinated polymers.
