The persistence and pathways of dissipation of 17beta-estradiol and estrone in soil were established in laboratory microcosm incubations. [4-14C]-17beta-Estradiol dissipation and mineralization rates were determined over a range of temperatures and moistures, and this compound was rapidly removed in soil conditions typical of a temperate growing season. 17beta-Estradiol was oxidized to estrone in both autoclaved and nonsterile loam, silt loam, and sandy loam soils, suggesting an abiological… CONTINUE READING
