Title Toxicity and mutagenic effects of perfluoromethylperfluorocyclohexane
Bibliographic information 1985, Vol.11, No.3, p.143-147. Illus. 5 ref.
Abstract The results of in-vitro experiments suggest that perfluoro(methylcyclohexane) (C7F14) is of low microgenotoxicity. It was positive in Ames' test using TA100 and TA98 cells with S-9 liver extract, but negative in chromosome aberration and sister chromatid exchange tests with human peripheral lymphocytes.
