Abstract

BACKGROUNDRemoval of some EDCs, such as triclosan including its metabolites (2,4-dichloro phenol and 2,3,4-trichloro phenol), estrogens (estrone, 17--estradiol and 17--ethinyl estradiol) and some pharmaceuticals (clofibric acid, clofibrate, clofibrate methyl ester, carbamazepine) from water and treated wastewater by commercial highly crosslinked polymer adsorbents (Diaion SP207, Diaion SP825, Dowex L493) and activated carbon was investigated using batch adsorption. The analyses of EDCs were performed by solid phase micro-extraction (SPME) coupled with gas chromatography/mass spectrometry.
