Abstract Rabbits were given an intravenous injection of colloidal carbon and killed 5 or 35 minutes after the injection. A light and electron microscope study suggested that attachment of carbon particles to the surface membrane of platelets is an early event in carbon clearance and provides morphological evidence that this attachment of the particles to platelets is likely to be a limiting factor in the rate of clearance of the carbon from the blood. Localization of carbon particles in various organs including the lungs was in platelet aggregates in which fibrin was not found. Carbon particles were not associated with fibrin deposits in any of the organs examined with the electron microscope.
