Abstract

This study aims to evaluate the potential toxic effects of ZnO nanoparticles on Artemia franciscana nauplii. The ZnO NPs suspension was characterized by TEM, EDS and DLS techniques. Acute toxicity was investigated by exposure of nauplii to concentrations of 1, 5, 7.5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30 mg/L of ZnO NPs for 48 h and 96 h. The 96-h EC10 and EC50 values of ZnO NPs were found to be 1.39 mg/L and 4.86 mg/L respectively. The ZnO NPs suspensions did not cause any significant acute toxicity after 48 h of exposure, but the immobilization rate increase significantly compare to control group after 96 h (P < 0.05). The results showed that the uptake, accumulation, and elimination of NPs in nauplii depends on the concentration of NPs and time. The elimination rates of 46.66% and 83.85% were recorded at 1 and 10 mg/L of NPs after 24 h of depuration period, respectively.
