  • whole body

Methods Endpoint/measurement parameters/methodology

Investigated material:
  • isolated bio./chem. substance
Time of investigation:
  • after exposure

Main outcome of study (acc. to author)

Chlorophyll-a as well as chlorophyll-b level was decreased except the exposure time of two hours, where a considerable enhancement was noticed. It was revealed that the ratio of the two chlorophylls was decreasing logarithmically to the increase of daily exposure time.
