Under some conditions the growth of toxic cyanobacteria must be controlled by treatment with algicidal compounds. Hydrogen peroxide has been proposed as an efficient and relatively safe chemical which can remove cyanobacteria from the environment selectively, without affecting other microorganisms. However, the uncontrolled release of secondary metabolites, including toxins may occur after such a treatment. Our proposal presented in this paper concerns fast biodegradation of microcystin… CONTINUE READING
