The present study assessed the toxic effects of stable aqueous colloidal suspensions of gallic acid stabilized C(70) -fullerene to Daphnia magna. The suspensions were stabilized through non-covalent surface modification with gallic acid. In addition to whole organism responses, changes in antioxidative processes in D. magna were quantified. Acute toxicity was observed with 96LC50 for C(70) -gallic acid of 0.4 ± 0.1 mg/L C(70) . Daphnia magna fecundity was significantly reduced in 21d bioassays at C(70) -gallic concentrations below quantifiable limits. Antioxidant enzyme activities of glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase as well as lipid peroxidation suggested that exposed organisms experienced oxidative stress. Microscopy techniques used to determine cellular toxicity via apoptosis proved unsuccessful. Environ. Toxicol. Chem. © 2011 SETAC.
