Abstract

Polyethylene glycol 1540, added to culture solution in amounts sufficient to reduce the water potential to -10 atmospheres, inhibited respiration in Chlorella much more than mannitol solutions at -10 atmospheres. This occurred despite the purification of the polyethylene glycol by passage through exchange columns. The toxic properties, which developed some time after purification, increased with time of storage of solutions of polyethylene glycol 1540 at room temperature.
