The mutagenicity of 24 benzyl derivatives, containing a variety of substituents and leaving groups, were assayed in strain TA100 using the Ames plate-incorporation assay. p-Nitrobenzyl chloride (12 000 revertants/mumole), p-nitrobenzyl tosylate (6100 revertants/mumole), and p-acetoxybenzyl chloride (100 revertants/mumole) were mutagenic; none of the… CONTINUE READING
