A comprehensive review of analytical methods for estrogen residues in food and the environment is presented. Both humans and animals can excrete estrogen, which can be detected in the environment. Furthermore, replacement therapy and livestock manure also make the situation worse, as the low concentration of estrogens has endocrine-disruptive effects such as the feminization of male fish. In this review, we review the existing analytical methods, including high-performance liquid chromatography… 
Assessment of source water contamination by estrogenic disrupting compounds in China.
Determination of estrogens and estrogenic activities in water from three rivers in Tianjin, China.
Analysis of estrogens in milk samples using ionic liquid-modified covalent organic framework and stable isotope labeling technique
Estrogens in milk samples were extracted by a new ionic liquid (IL)-modified covalent organic framework (COF), and then analyzed by stable isotope labeling (SIL) method using dansyl chloride (DNS-Cl)
Analysis of hormone antagonists in clinical and municipal wastewater by isotopic dilution liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry
Analysis of hormone antagonists in clinical and municipal wastewater by liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry and recoveries based on internal standard calibration in different test matrices.


Analytical methods for the determination of selected steroid sex hormones and corticosteriods in wastewater
An analytical method for the determination of 12 selected estrogens, progestagens and corticosteroids is presented and it is revealed that all the compounds investigated are present in the effluents.
Analytical Methods for Detection of Selected Estrogenic Compounds in Aqueous Mixtures
Both natural estrogens and synthetic compounds that mimic estrogen can reach the aquatic environment through wastewater discharges. Because nonylphenol (NP), octylphenol (OP), nonylphenol
Development of an analytical procedure for determination of selected estrogens and progestagens in water samples
An analytical procedure has been developed for determination of eight selected natural and synthetic hormonal steroids in surface water and in effluent samples; it was found that when no preservative was added to effluent from a sewage-treatment plant, severe loss of steroids occurred.
Manure-borne estrogens as potential environmental contaminants: a review.
A literature review to assess the current state of science regarding estrogen physicochemical properties, livestock excretion, and the fate of manure-borne estrogens in the environment found that estrogens are sufficiently mobile and persistent to impact surface and groundwater quality.
Development and validation of an analytical method for detection of estrogens in water
Application of the procedure to water samples from the Scheldt estuary (Belgium – The Netherlands), a polluted estuary with reported incidences of environmental endocrine disruption, revealed that E1 was detected most frequently at concentrations up to 7 ng L−1 and concentrations of bE2 and EE2 were below the LOQ.
Trace analysis of estrogenic chemicals in sewage effluent using liquid chromatography combined with tandem mass spectrometry.
Compared to a previous gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) method for the analysis of ten STW samples, this method was shown to provide higher sensitivity and lower time consumption.
