  1. The photo-oxidation of automobile emissions : measurements of the transformation products and their mutagenic activity.

    Article - En anglais

    Dilute mixtures of automobile emissions (comprising 50% exhaust and 50% surrogate evaporative emissions) were irradiated in a 22.7 m3 smog chamber and tested for mutagenic activity by using a variant of the Ames test.

    The exhaust was taken from a single vehicle, a 1977 Ford Mustang equipped wiht a catalytic converter.

    Irradiated and nonirradiated gas-phase emissions were used in exposures of the bacteria, Salmonella typhimurium, strains TA100 and TA98.

    A single set of vehicular operating conditions was used to perform multiple exposures.
