Earthworm toxicity data for exposure to zinc oxide nanoparticles

This dataset was generated from a laboratory experiment investigating the toxicity of Zinc oxide nanoparticles and non-nanoparticles to the earthworm Eisenia andrei. The experiment followed the OECD protocol 222 OECD guideline for testing of chemicals Earthworm reproduction test (Eisenia fetida/andrei) 2004. Earthworms, Eisenia andrei, were exposed to Zinc oxide particles and nanoparticles, as well as an ionic reference, Zinc chloride, in soil for 28 days after which survival, reproduction and weight change were measured to assess the toxicity of the different zinc compounds.

Provenance & quality

This dataset was generated from a laboratory experiment investigating the toxicity of ZnO nanoparticles and non-nanoparticles to the earthworm Eisenia andrei. The experiment followed the OECD protocol 222: OECD guideline for testing of chemicals: Earthworm reproduction test (Eisenia fetida/andrei) 2004. Earthworms, Eisenia Andrei, were exposed to ZnO particles and nanoparticles, as well as an ionic reference, ZnCl2, in soil for 28 days after which survival, reproduction and weight change were measured to assess the toxicity of the different zinc compounds.
