Toxicity of cypermethrin on growth, pigments, and superoxide dismutase of Scenedesmus obliquus.

Cypermethrin is a synthetic pyrethroid that is particularly toxic to crustaceans. It is therefore applied as a chemotherapeutant in farms for the treatment of pests. The effective concentrations of cypermethrin on the inhibition of Scenedesmus obliquus growth at 96 h (96 h EC50) were determined to be 50, 100, 150, 200, and 250 mg/L. Algal growth, pigment… CONTINUE READING
