No data were available to evaluate the reproductive effects or prenatal toxicity of dichloroacetylene to experimental animals.
Dichloroacetylene and one of its decomposition products, trichloroacryloyl chloride, were mutagenic to Salmonella typhimurium in the presence or absence of an exogenous metabolic system. Under the same conditions a mixture of dichloroacetylene and acetylene was not mutagenic.
No case report or epidemiological study was available to evaluate the carcinogenicity of dichloroacetylene to humans.
No data on humans were available.
In the absence of epidemiological data, no evaluation of the carcinogenicity of dichloroacetylene to humans could be made.
