Metabolomics is an emerging approach that investigates the changes in the metabolome profile. In the present study, Lemna minor -considered as an experimental aquatic plant model- was incubated with 10 and 100 μM diclofenac (DCF) for 96 h, respectively. Knowing that DCF is internationally often problematic in wastewater effluents and that it might affect particularly the metabolic profiles in aquatic plants, mainly the oxidoreductase, dehydrogenase, peroxidase, and glutathione reductase activities, here it was hypothesized (H) that in the common duckweed, DCF might increase the phenolic and flavonoids pathways, as an antioxidant response to this stress (H1).
