Rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss, 1-5 g) were exposed to approximately 7.5 microM Co in soft water for 2-3 hr at pH approximately 6.5. The water contained either complexing ligands such as nitrilotriacetic acid and natural dissolved organic matter (DOM) or competing cations such as Ca, Na, or H. After exposure, gills were excised and analyzed for total bound Co using a graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrophotometer. A Langmuir isotherm was used to calculate the conditional equilibrium… CONTINUE READING
