The organic materials extracted from diesel particulate produce a positive mutagenic response in the Ames Salmonella test. Since a small amount of high molecular weight hydrocarbon material passes through particulate filters in a gaseous form, there has been a persistent concern that these gaseous organics may also be mutagenic. Several attempts at developing a test procedure to collect the gaseous organics behind particulate filters have failed due to inadequacy of the hydrocarbon absorbing media. This study evaluates previously exposed diesel particulate filters as a collection medium after the filters have been baked at about 1000 F to remove the particulate-bound organics.
