Morphometric Parameters and Biochemical Status of Oilseed Rape Exposed to Fine-Dispersed Metallurgical Sludge, PHMB-Stabilized Silver Nanoparticles and Multi-Wall Carbon Nanotubes


Article Preview

Thepaper Presents Biological Properties of Threefine-Dispersed Materials, Namely Metallurgical Sludge, Colloidal Silver Andmulti-Wall Carbon Nanotubes (MWCNT) Exposing Oilseed Rape Plants. the Stimulationof Plant’s Growth by Silver Nanoparticles and the Intensification of Plantpigments Synthesis by MWCNT have been Experimentally Demonstrated. A Small Decreasein Energy and Germination Capacity were Noticed Whereby Colloidal Silver Hadthe Lowest Suppressive Effect, MWCN Tubes had the Highest Effect, and Sludge Wasfound in between Two above-Mentioned Materials. According to the Research, the Usageof Sludge is the most Effective at the Concentration of 10 and 100 g/l,colloidal Silver – 10 g/l and 300 g/l, MWCNT – 0,001 g/l and 1 g/l.
