Abstract:
Four pollutants, including acrylonitrile, acetonitrile, sulphocyanic socdium and dimethyl formamina,were studied for their short-tem chronic toxicity to embryo-larval fish and amphibians (Cyprinus carpio and Ranaa nigromaculata.) The results indicated that the chronic values of the four pollutants to carp were 2.26,56, 28.3 and 1131 mg/L respectively,and those of acetonitrile,sulphocyanic sodium and dimethyl formamina to Rana mgromaculata were 2 828, 56.5 and 4 525 mg/L respectively.The results also showed that embryol-larval test might effectively predict the chronic toxicity of pollutants.
