Abstract Literature surveys and the conclusions of a research group were used to produce this report. The group's work included animal and human experiments, dealing with absorption, excretion, acute and subacute toxicity, genetic and carcinogenic effects. Discussed were: chemical data; the toxicology of chlorophenols and of their impurities; the toxicity of phenoxycarboxylic acids and of their impurities; the production of these compounds; epidemiology of the cancers associated with phenoxycarboxylic acids (sarcomas, lymphomas, etc.); toxicologic and technical data on chlorophenols and chlorocresols; toxicologic data on phenoxycarboxylic acids and their impurities.
