Irreversible binding of chlorinated ethylenes to macromolecules


Rats have been exposed in a closed system to the chlorinated ethylenes vinyl chloride and trichloroethylene and to carbon tetrachloride as a reference compound. Data of uptake of the compounds, of urinary excretion of metabolites, and of exhalation after exposure show that the chlorinated ethylenes are metabolized much faster than carbon tetrachloride… (More)
