The information herein contained has been obtained from American, British and French reports. The British and French reports were not all available as a consequence only a part of the British and French work is here presented. The first part of this report deals with laboratory tests while the second part is a compilation of the various field tests conducted by the Americans and British on phosgene and mixtures. Phosgene has been designated as CG, G-52, D-Stoff, carbonyl chloride, carbon oxychloride, collongite, MD-8, L-3.
