This report presents the Ames Test mutagenicity results of fourteen compounds considered as PCB substitutes for transformers and their potential additives. The final selection-WEMCOL + A--is not mutagenic, hence also considered non-carcinogenic. All other tested compounds were also negative in the Ames Test.
