The use of photodynamic dyes for biofouling prevention






Moscow University Biological Sciences Bulletin 47(3): 48-51

The use of photodynamic dyes for biofouling prevention

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.
