Lack of mutagenicity to S. typhimurium of neopentyl bromide and pentaerythrityl tetrachloride: relation to chemical structure.

Abstract

Neopentyl bromide and pentaerythrityl tetrachloride were shown here to be non-mutagenic to 7 strains of Salmonella typhimurium. These inactivities are reflected in the inability of either compound to produce a colour reaction in the chemical alkylation test of Epstein (4-nitrobenzylpyridine, NBP). It is suggested that the lack of biological reactivity of… (More)
