A complex combination of hydrocarbons obtained by subjecting a petroleum naphtha to a sweetening process to convert mercaptans or to remove acidic impurities. It consists of hydrocarbons having carbon numbers predominantly in the range of C4 through C5, predominantly C5, and boiling in the range of approximately minus 10°C to 35°C (14°F to 95°F).
With activation, there was no trend indicating a dose-related response,
and therefore, the increase in number of mutations was not thought to be
API PS-6 (unleaded gasoline) was examined for its potential to induce
mutations in the L5178Y mouse lymphoma cell line, in both the presence
and absence of an S9 metabolic activation system. The doses were: 0.065,
0.13, 0.26, 0.52, and 1.04 microliters/ml. API PS-6 did not induce a
statistically significant increase in the number of mutant colonies at
any of the doses with or without metabolic activation; little
cytotoxicity was observed. Both the positive and negative controls
responded appropriately. Under the conditions of this study, API PS-6
was not mutagenic. This finding does not warrant classification of
unleaded gasoline as a genotoxin under Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 on
classification, labeling, and packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP)
or under the Directive 67/518/EEC for dangerous substances and Directive
1999/45/EC for preparations.
