Metabolic activation of carbon tetrachloride proceeds by formation of the free radical CCl3 (Recknagel & Glende 1973), while the highly electrophilic species bromobenzene-3 ,Cepoxide is probably the primary cytotoxic metabolite of bromobenzene (Jollow et a1 1974, Jollow & Smith 1977). The available evidence indicates that carbon tetrachloride exerts its hepatotoxic effect by initiating lipid peroxidation, whereas the cytotoxic mechanism of bromobenzene depends on alkylation of nucleophilic groups in the tissue.
