The effect of different Cu2+ concentrations on the red microalga Rhodela reticulata was studied. Rhodella cells cultivated in Cu+2 containing media exhibited ability to uptake and accumulate the heavy metal from the suspension. The analyses performed by ICP-AES demonstrated that Cu+2 biosorption increased with the increase of the heavy metal concentration in cultivation media. Cu+2 had inhibitory effect on algal cells in the order: 0.25> 0.025> 0.0025> 0.00025 mg/ 100ml. Cu+2 was toxic for… CONTINUE READING
