Project: Analytics and metabolisation studies of endocrine disrupters (natural hormones and xenobiotics) in aquatic invertebrates.
01-JAN-02 – 31-OCT-04
The metabolisation of various natural hormones and xenobiotics is investigated in the aquatic invertebrate Neomysis integer. Analytical procedures for identification, quantification and purification of the different metabolites are established with LC-MSn and TLC. Comparative metabolisation studies are undertaken and the possibilities of producing standards in vivo are explored.
