  • Toxicity Test

    INTRODUCTION: Toxicity test evaluates the deleterious effects of chemicals on humans, animals, plants, environment following single (acute) or repeated (long term) exposure (Arwa and Vladimir, 2016). Safety evaluation of chemicals is very important for their development and approval for human uses (Gallagher, 2003; Peers et al., 2012).

I used six different concentrations: 0 mg/L (control), 1 mg/L, 5 mg/L, 25 mg/L, 125 mg/L, and 625 mg/L. Gibberellic acid (99% purity, Chemservice, West Chester, PA) was dissolved in deionized water as it ionized…
