Abstract:

The neutralization of shellfish poison by 11 chemical disinfectants was studied. Both sodium hypochlorite and calcium hypochlorite were effective in neutralizing the toxicity of the poison at 3 ppmmicrogram of poison at room temperature 25C and at 4 ppmmicrogram of poison at 4C. Alkali in the hypochlorite solutions tends to enhance the effectiveness of these disinfectants. Potassium permanganate was effective as a poison neutralizer at 50 ppmmicrogram of poison at 25C.
