Prymnesium parvum from the Oder near Hohenwutzen

Suspicion confirmed: algal toxin produced by brackish water species detected in Oder water

Scientists from the Leibniz Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB) and the University of Vienna think that natural causes for the mass development of the algae are unlikely

Abb. 1:  (a) Illustration of the dye adsorption mechanism on bulk COF and ultrathin COF. Bulk COF only allows dyes with a molecular size much smaller than the pore size to enter the COF channels, while ultrathin COF provides maximum adsorption site exposure, resulting in high uptake for various dyes. (b) Comparison of equilibrium times and maximum adsorption capacities (qm) of bulk COF and ultrathin COF for Rhodamine B. (© Changxia Li, Freddy Kleitz et al.)
