Abstract:

Selenastrum capricorntum and Dunaliella tertiolecta were used as test algae in bioassays to determine the toxic andor biostimulating effects of hydrazine and methylated hydrazines in various freshwater and marine aquatic environments. Standard batch algal assay procedures were used to determine safe concentrations and effective concentrations for the compounds studied. Chemical analyses were performed to determine compound stability under the various test conditions.
