Tris(2,3-dibromopropyl) phosphate: mutagenicity of a widely used flame retardant.

Abstract

Tris(2,3-dibromopropyl) phosphate, a widely used flame-retardant additive for textiles, is mutagenic to histidine-requiring strains of Salmonella typhimurium. Extracts of fabrics treated with this compound are also capable of inducing mutations in these bacterial strains.
