Although the release of intracellular toxins after chlorination has been reported, the relation between cell lysis and the release and degradation of toxins during chlorination has not been well illustrated. This study used Microcystis aeruginosa to investigate the release and degradation behaviors of toxins after its exposure to chlorine at different doses for prolonged contact time. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) analysis indicates no considerable change in the morphology for most algae… CONTINUE READING
