Abstract Effects of stable chloro-organic compounds formed during chlorination of sewage effluents on growth of marine unicellular algae were determined. Captan suppressed growth of Dunaliella tertiolecta and Porphyridium cruentum at 5 ppm. Growth of Skeletonema costatum was inhibited by 0.25 ppm captan. 3-Chlorobenzoic acid inhibited growth of S. costatum at 10 ppm but had no effect on D. tertiolecta or P. cruentum. There was no effect of 1-10 ppm 5-chlorouracil on S. costatum, but growth of D. tertiolecta was stimulated initially. Growth of S. costatum was inhibited by 1 ppm 4-chlororesorcinol, and 10 ppm inhibited growth of P. cruentum. At 1 ppm, 3-chlorophenol stimulated growth of all three species, but growth of S. costatum was inhibited by 2.5 ppm. A combination of 3-chlorophenol and 4-chlororesorcinol interacted synergistically to reduce growth of S. costatum. It is concluded that chloro-organic compounds formed during chlorination of sewage effluent are not an immediate threat to marine unicellular algae.
