A novel luminescent compound, 9,9-bis[4'-(beta-naphthyl-methacrylate)phenyl]fluorene (F-NMAP) is synthesized by Heck reaction of beta-naphthyl methacrylic ester (NMAE) and 9,9-bis(4'-iodophenyl)-fluorene (BIPF). The structure is characterized by MS, 1H NMR, IR, and UV-vis spectroscopy. The photophysical processes of F-NMAP have been carefully investigated...

The mutagenic activity of dimethyl terephthalate (DMtP) was evaluated in the micronucleus test in mice. A clear clastogenic effect was obtained at all concentrations studied (0.2-1.0 mmole/kg body weight). The maximum number of micronuclei occurred 24 h after a single...
