Testing Status of Methyl vinyl sulfone - M930027
- Ethene, (methylsulfonyl)-
Methyl vinyl sulfone & divinyl sulfone were tested for the induction of dominant lethal mutations & micronucleated bone-marrow erythrocytes in male mice. These chemicals were chosen for study because of their similarities in structure and chemical reactivity to acrylamide which is known to induce both effects.
