The use of photodynamic dyes for biofouling prevention


, : The use of photodynamic dyes for biofouling prevention. Moscow University Biological Sciences Bulletin 47(3): 48-51

Chlorophyll content, the specific activity of oxygen evolution, the rates of growth and lipid peroxidation in relation to the effect of the photosensibilizator Bengal Rose have been studied in a population of the alga Scenedesmus quadricauda. Possible use of active forms of oxygen in biofouling control is discussed. Singlet oxygen has been demonstrated to be a universal damaging agent, whereas the molecules of Bengal Rose in the low concn used are nontoxic.
