ABSTRACT
Silver nanoparticles (SNPs) at 1 mg/l inhibited the growth of the toxic cyanobacterium, Microcystis aeruginosa, by 87%. Similar results were obtained in field experiments. M. aeruginosa was more sensitive to SNPs than were green algae. SNPs may be a useful selective biocidal agent for the control of M. aeruginosa.
