    The ability of silver nanoparticles to kill bacteria, and the effects of industrial chemicals on biological indicators in water, sediment, and soil
    Author(s): Paul Cambier*

    Using a conventional laboratory toxicity test, the lethal toxic effects of industrial detergent (Neatex) and corrosion inhibitor (Norust CR 486) that are often discharged into the Nigerian environment were investigated. Using the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) # 203, 218 and 207 procedures, bio indicators (fish, shrimp, and earthworms) were subjected to various concentrations of the test substances. Both compounds were modestly harmful to organisms according to the water, sediment, and soil ratings, but the corrosion inhibitor was more toxic than the industrial detergent based on the predicted 4, 10, and 14-day lethal concentrations (LC50). Between organisms exposed to the test compounds in the three mediums and the control groups, there was differentiable toxicity at (p 0.05). Because most chemicals released into the environment bind .. View More»
