Ecotoxicological assessment of two surfactant on the emryonic development
MetadataShow full item record
In this study, zebrafish (Danio rerio) embryos was served as a model for marine fauna to determine if there is any potential of organ-specific toxicity (neuromuscular, hepatic, cytotoxic, and cardiac) caused by Silicone-Q-22 and Ploy-Q-47. as both surfactants are considered eco-friendly corrosion inhibitors. The calculated LC50 of Silicon-Q-22 and Poly-Q-47 was 22.36 and 8.28 mg/L, respectively. At NOEC both surfactants had resulted in teratogenic defects and cardiotoxicity, but only poly Q-47 resulted in neurotoxicity.
