Four N acetoxy N arylacetamides previously found to be local sarcomagens in the rat have been found to be initiators of tumorigenesis in mouse skin. The order of activity was: N acetoxy 2 acetamidophenanthrene > N acetoxy 4 acetamidostilbene N acetoxy 2 acetamidofluorene > N acetoxy 4 acetamidobiphenyl. Two substituted N benzoyloxypiperidines previously shown to yield nitrenium ions on solvolysis in methanol also had initiating activity in mouse skin.
