Effect of Increasing Concentrations of Chromium on In-vitro Culture of Datura inoxia

Ashwini A Waoo

The World’s industrialization has spectacularly increased the overall environmental 'load' of heavy metal toxins in such a way that people dependent upon them for proper functioning. Industrial processes have actively manufactured, mined, burned, and refined heavy metal compounds for many reasons. Today heavy metals are profuse in drinking water, air and soil. They are exists in almost every area of modern consumer products such as in materials of construction materials, medicines, agents of destruction, processed foods, and in fuel sources. Their presence in the ecosystems causes accumulation by living organisms in their bodies. Industrial activities produce large amount of wastewater polluted by metals. Thus, environmental cleanup in the form of removal of metals from industrial effluents was a thrust area in today’s research. The present piece of research is aimed to make an in-depth investigation about effect of various chromium concentrations on In vitro culture of Datura inoxia. Here percentage of survival and shoot length was analyzed on heavy metal supplemented M. S. Media. Nodal and shoot tip explants were used. Datura inoxia shown survival up to 45 mg/l, but at higher concentration of chromium causes adverse effect on shoot length and percentage of survival was decreased.
