Effect of barium chloride on growth and oxidative stress of saltwater algae

Title variants
Languages of publication
Algae have the ability to detoxify the environment by binding heavy metals. They are also used as natural biosensors. In this study, the effect of barium chloride on saltwater algae was examined. Direct influence on the development of the test organism was visualized by means of infrared spectroscopy. The direct effect of barium chloride describes the amount of polyphenols and chlorophyll content in the culture. Work indicates the toxicity scale of a relatively small amount of toxic factor. The results were compared with the effects for a non-barium chloride culture.
