A complex combination of hydrocarbons obtained from the distillation of crude oil or natural gasoline. It consists predominantly of saturated hydrocarbons having carbon numbers predominantly in the range of C9 through C12 and boiling in the range of approximately 140°C to 220°C (284°F to 428°F).
mutagenicity indices of the three samples were all zero, thus demonstrating
an absence of mutagenic activity. Interestingly, none of the samples was
found to contain any measurable 3-7 ring PACs.
A standard Ames test was conducted on wet
treated, straight-run kerosines and hydrotreated kerosines. S.
typhimurium were exposed to kerosine and solvent DMSO at concentrations
of 50 µL/mL.
Because the standard Ames test is considered inappropriate for testing
the mutagenicity of water insoluble petroleum products, the Ames test
was modified according to Blackburn (1986) in order to be applied to
straight-run kerosines. Substances tested were considered positive if
they showed a mutagenicity index greater than 1.0. All three kerosines
tested had MI values of 0.0.
This study received a Klimisch score of 1
and is classified as reliable without restrictions because it is an
acceptable and a well-documented study report.
