Understanding sub-lethal effects of nanomaterial may be particularly important to determining ecosystem responses as current levels of nanomaterial release are low compared to levels projected for the future. In this work, the sub-lethal effects of water stable, nanocrystalline fullerenes as C60 (termed nC60) were studied on Scenedesmusobliquus, a globally distributed phytoplankton. Sub-lethal concentration for S. obliquus was firstly determined as 0.09mgL(-1) using the standard 72h exposure… CONTINUE READING
