Abstract

Endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) have become contaminants of emerging

concern due to their potential for harmful effects on human and ecological health, at low

concentrations (ppb). As an alternative to conventional adsorption media, activated

carbon, this study investigates feasibility of using high-silica, hydrophobic zeolites for

the removal of EDCs through adsorption process. Zeolites are crystalline, porous

alumino-silicate with well defined pore structures, and tetrahedral framework.
