To assess the ecotoxic potential of soil contaminants, a test with the soil alga Chlorococcum infusionum has been developed, enabling investigations of soil pollutions with soluble and fairly soluble chemicals. Three soil types artificially contaminated with Sb compounds and five soils from a historical mining area, which were highly polluted with Sb, As, Hg, and Cu, were used as test soils. For antimony, EC50 values from 125 mg/kg up to > 1000 mg/kg, depending on soil type, were determined… CONTINUE READING
