Deaths, injuries, and losses due to fires continue to be
major problems in the United States which still holds
the dubious distinction of having the highest death rate
per capita in the industrialized world. Interest in the
fire problem was indicated by a major week-long
symposium entitled "Fire and Polymers" which was
sponsored by the American Chemical Society in Dallas,
Texas in April, 1989. One day of that symposium was
devoted to combustion product toxicity and the rest of
the sessions were devoted to the chemistry. The
proceedings of that meeting are in the process of being
