The nature of being poisonous to cells is cytotoxicity. A number of cell fates can result in the treatment of cells with a cytotoxic compound. In this study, the nauplii were exposed to different concentrations of compounds for 24 hours. Experiments were concluded with control and different concentration of the compound. The whole set was triplicate to get an accurate result. The LC50 was determined from the best fit line, of a graph of % mortality vs. concentration of nauplii. The LC50 value was obtained from the antilogarithm of log [complex] at 50% mortality (LC50), all data were collected from three independent experiments.
