Many chemical substances of natural or anthropogenic origin are suspected or known to be endocrine disruptors, which can influence the endocrine system of life. This observation has led to increased interest on the part of the public and the media, as well as to a steep rise of research activities in the scientific community. New papers and results are presented so fast that it is impossible to give a complete review of this emerging research field. Therefore, this paper tries to give insight… Expand

The impact of estrogens on aquatic organisms and methods for their determination
TLDR
The aim of this study was to review the literature on the impact of estrone, 17-β-estradiol, estriol, and synthetic 17-α-ethinylestradio on the reproductive processes of aquatic organisms and discuss the latest trends in analytical chemistry which support accurate, sensitive, and selective determination of steroid hormones in environmental samples.

Estrogenic Compounds: Chemical Characteristics, Detection Methods, Biological and Environmental Effects
Several chemical compounds are being studied for their capacities to cause imbalances in several biological systems. Some of those are able to affect the endocrine system and are known as endocrineExpand
Endocrine disruptor contaminants in water and their adverse effects in humans
TLDR
Anumber of endocrine disruptors have been detected in ground and drinking water and these cannot only interfere with the natural production and metabolism of hormones in the body, but also represent a serious carcinogenic risk. Expand
Endocrine disruption profile analysis of 11,416 chemicals from chemometrical tools
TLDR
A SAR study performed on 11,416 chemicals retrieved from the US-NCI database and for which 13 different PASS (Prediction of Activity Spectra for Substances) endocrine activities were available, various multivariate analyses and graphical displays were used for deriving structure-activity relationships based on specific structural features. Expand
Prediction of the endocrine disruption profile of pesticides$
TLDR
An attempt was made to evaluate the endocrine disruption profile of 220 structurally diverse pesticides using the Endocrine Disruptome simulation (EDS) tool, which simultaneously predicts the probability of binding of chemicals on 12 nuclear receptors. Expand
Phytodecontamination of Water Systems from Phenolic Endocrine Disruptors and the Regulation Role of Natural Organic Matter
In the last decades an increasing number of natural and synthetic compounds have been recognized as endocrine disruptors (EDs) because of their hormone-like activity and capacity to alter the normalExpand
Persistent Organic Pollutants
Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are chemical substances sharing the combination of persistence and bioaccumulation. These features are a result of their chemical–physical characteristics. TheExpand
THE ROLE OF HUMIC SUBSTANCES IN THE FATE OF ANTHROPOGENIC ORGANIC POLLUTANTS IN SOIL WITH EMPHASIS ON ENDOCRINE DISRUPTOR COMPOUNDS
In the first part of this paper an overview is provided of the various phenomena that anthropogenic organic pollutants (AOPs) of various nature and origin are subjected in soil and of the specificExpand
Endocrine Disruptors as Pollutants in Marine Ecosystem: A Case Study in Egypt
TLDR
It is likely that women in urban areas have a higher exposure to environmental hormonal risk factors, possibly xenoestrogens (EDCs) with regards to known risk factors of uterine and breast cancer. Expand
Synthetic endocrine disruptors in the environment and water remediation by advanced oxidation processes.
TLDR
It was found that photocatalysis with titanium dioxide was the most frequently tested advanced oxidation method most likely due to its potential to render complete mineralization and direct and indirect photolysis and ozonation were less effective for the overall mineralization but more representative of the conditions existing in real water treatment plants.
