Project description

A method will be developped allowing sorptive extraction of EDC's from contaminated water samples, based on immobilized peptidomimetics mimicking the estrogen receptor recognized by EDC's. Using smart thermoresponive polymers as solid support should pave the way to selective chromatographic analytical methods for determining EDC's.
