A NOVEL CLASS OF FLUOROCHEMICALS IS PROPOSED AS BLOOD SUBSTITUTES. THE PROPOSED COMPOSITIONS WILL BE SYNTHESIZED,PURIFIED, AND CHARACTERIZED. EMULSIONS AND OTHER PREPARATIONS WILL BE PREPARED, AND THEIR ABILITY TO DISSOLVEOXYGEN WILL BE DETERMINED. THE EFFICACY OF THE FLUOROCHEMICALS AS BLOOD SUBSTITUTES WILL BE DETERMINED USING MICE.
