P-Tolualdehyde (CAS No. 104-87-0) was evaluated for mutagenicity in the Ames test (strains TA1535, TA100, TA1537, TA98) with and without metabolic activation (S-9 mix) and in the Escherichia coli (WP2 uvrA) reverse mutation assay at a dose range of 20 ug - 5000 ug/plate in the standard plate test (SPT) and 4 ug - 2500 ug/plate in the preincubation test (PIT). No bacteriotoxic effect was observed with E. coli. Bacteriotoxicity was detected in all Salmonella strains detected at 2500 ug/plate (PIT) and at 5000 ug/plate (SPT). The test substance was determined to be non- mutagenetic.
