Seaweeds are marine macro algae that can be found attach to the bottom shallow coastal waters. There are three major groups of seaweeds namely brown (Phaeophyta), red (Rhodophyta) and green (Chlorophyta). One of the edible red seaweeds is Eucheuma cottonii. Red seaweeds have been found of consisted several potential pharmaceutical uses such as antitumor, antiviral, anticoagulant and immunomodulation functions. In This study, heavy metals content of E. cottonii was determined by ICP-OES…
