This paper is a quantitative analysis of the relationship between the chemical structure and the Salmonella mutagenicity of a number of chlorofluorocarbons (CFC). The molecules were characterized by both molecular orbital and physical chemical parameters. The results of the analysis indicated that the CFC mutagenicity is correlated with two parameters: the free energy of binding to biological receptors, and the energy of the highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO). Since these are the same factors that would favor the cytochrome P-450-catalyzed metabolism, it would appear that the CFC mutagenicity is determined more by the rate of initial activation than by the rate of DNA attack.
