Chrysene was non-specifically chlorinated and the toxic potency of the mixture formed was studied. The chlorinated mixture was considerably more potent than the parent compound in terms of embryolethality and EROD and AHH induction in a 2-week test in chick embryos. The chlorinated chrysene caused anomalies, including edema and beak defects, similar to… (More)
