In the environment, conjugated estrogens are nontoxic but may hydrolyze to their potent unconjugated, 'free' forms. Compared to free estrogens, conjugated estrogens would be more mobile in the environment because of their higher water solubility. To identify the fate of a conjugated estrogen in natural agricultural soils, batch experiments were conducted with a (14)C labeled prototype conjugate, 17β-estradiol-3-glucuronide (E2-3G). Initially, aqueous dissipation was dominated by biological… CONTINUE READING
