Zebrafish Assays as Developmental Toxicity Indicators in The Design of TAML Oxidation Catalysts

Green Chem. 2013 Sep 1;15(9):2339-2343. doi: 10.1039/C3GC40376A.


TAML activators promise a novel water treatment approach by efficiently catalysing peroxide-based degradation of chemicals of high concern at environmental concentrations. Green design ethics demands an exploration of TAML toxicity. Exposure to high concentrations of certain activators caused adverse effects in zebrafish. At typical TAML operational concentrations, development was not perturbed.
