Earthworm toxicity data for exposure to cerium oxide nanoparticles

This dataset was generated from a laboratory experiment investigating the toxicity of Cerium oxide nanoparticles and non-nanoparticles to the earthworm Eisenia fetida. The toxicity test procedure followed the OECD guideline 222 (earthworm reproduction test (Eisenia fetida/andrei)). Exposure concentrations for both nano and non-nano Cerium oxide particulate forms and the cerium salt materials were 41, 102, 256, 640, 1600, 4000, 10000 mg Ce per kg (Dry Weight soil). Each replicate container held 500 g soil with ten worms. There were three replicate containers per treatment concentration. All exposures were run concurrently and hence effect could be benchmarked against a universal control treatment for the experiment. This comprised of ten separate replicates of Lufa 2.2 soil without amendment of any form of Cerium.

Provenance & quality

This dataset was generated from a laboratory experiment investigating the toxicity of CeO2 nanoparticles and non-nanoparticles to the earthworm Eisenia fetida. The toxicity test procedure followed the OECD guideline 222 (earthworm reproduction test (Eisenia fetida/andrei)). Exposure concentrations for both nano and non-nano CeO2 particulate forms and the cerium salt materials were 41, 102, 256, 640, 1600, 4000, 10000 mg Ce /kg (DW soil). Each replicate container held 500 g soil with ten worms. There were three replicate containers per treatment concentration. All exposures were run concurrently and hence effect could be benchmarked against a universal control treatment for the experiment. This comprised of ten separate replicates of Lufa 2.2 soil without amendment of any form of cerium.
