Structural derivatives of enviroxime such as the [C.sub.2]- and vinylacetylene analogs were reported to have a better oral bioavailability and pharmacologic profile (25,26) and may therefore be considered as leading candidates for further development.

When 1,3-butadiene and other substrates found in VOC mixtures (e.g., propane, propylene, butane, vinylacetylene) are burned in air, substantial amounts of polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and fine particulates (< 2.5 [micro]m) are generated (12).
