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.
