Pyrolytic Formation of Polyaromatic Hydrocarbons From Steroid Hormones


Four steroid hormones namely androsterone, cholesterol, estrone and estradiol have been pyrolysed at 300, 400 and 500 o C and the pyrolysates from these have been analysed by GC-MS. The results indicate that these formed different products under the pyrolysis and most of them evolved into polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons during their residence in the… (More)
