Acute toxicity test of synthesized calcium zincate nanoparticles in common carp Cyprinus carpio


Author(s): Bhavya C, Yogendra K, Mahadevan KM and Madhusudhana N

Abstract: Aquatic pollution, due to the anthropogenic activity has become one of the serious challenges in biotic communities. Since fish are highly sensitive to pollutants, study of fish leads to the better understanding of the aquatic ecosystems. This paper emphasizes on the determination of 96hr LC50 value of calcium zincate nanoparticles for the fish, Cyprinus carpio. The acute toxicity of CaZnO2 NP was evaluated by static bioassays and calculation of the LC50 (lethality concentration for 50%). The test was performed according to the standard methods in APHA and the value was calculated by probit analysis. The fish specimens were acclimatized in the laboratory conditions for 12 days. The stock solution of CaZnO2 NP was prepared and the fish were treated with various concentrations for 96 hours. The results showed that the median lethal concentration (LC50) of CaZnO2 NP for the fish, Cyprinus carpio is 35.251 mg/l. Results showed that calcium nanoparticles are toxic for fish species.
