dc.description.abstractThe fresh water cyanobacterium Anabaena circinalis produces saxitoxin (STX) and several other toxins with similar basic structural skeleton. Collectively, these toxins are known as Paralytic Shellfish Poisons or PSPs. These toxins are water soluble and can escape into the water body after cell lysis. The presence of these toxins in drinking water is a serious threat to human health. The present work has shown that Paralytic Shellfish Poisons (PSPs) in drinking water can be removed by chlorination at high pH (>9.0), provided a residual of 0.5 mg/L of free chlorine is present after 30 minutes of contact time.en_US
