Journal Title:Journal of Chemical, Biological and physical sciences

The effect of two sterilization substances (Mercuric chloride and sodium hypochlorite) on the germination rate, and Multiwall carbon nanotubes on both seed germination and seedling growth, was studied in tomato plant (lycopersicum esculantum var.Arka Vikas). Surface sterilization of mature seeds using 4% sodium hypochlorite (Naocl) stimulated the germination rate; although0.1% mercuric chloride (HgCl2) completely inhibits the tomato seed germination. Multi walled Carbon nanotubes shows the positive effect on the tomato seed germination and plant growth when compared to the normal medium, the maximum germination rate and seedling growth was observed at 40 ?g/ml concentration of carbon nanotubes.
