Mesocosms' and microcosms' utilization for ecotoxicity evaluation of dichloromethane a chlorinated solvent


Mesocosms' and microcosms' utilization for ecotoxicity evaluation of dichloromethane a chlorinated solvent



Chemosphere 24(1): 37-50

The impact of a dichloromethane contamination (a widely used solvent), was studied on aquatic microcosms and mesocosms. Few effects were observed. The most sensitive species of the examined ones were snails which died at 0.5 g L-1 contamination. Dichloromethane concentration rapidly decreases by volatilization from mesocosms water. Microcosms and mesocosms experiments confirm the weak toxicity of dichloromethane, observed by laboratory studies.
