Edginton, J.A. and Lynch, R.D., 1977. INHALATION TOXICITY OF PYROLYSIS PRODUCTS FROM POLYURETHANE FOAMS. Fire Research Notes 1077
Rats and guinea pigs were exposed for 30 minutes to the smoke and gases evolved during the pyrolysis of certain types of polyurethane foam. Under the conditions of the experiments, carbon monoxide was the major toxic material produced, and accounted for about two-thirds of the lethal effect. The remainder appears due to the presence of hydrogen cyanide,which was not produced to the extent expected.
