Short description: The environmental analysis of estrogens and progestogens at physiologically active concentrations requires the use of very sensitive and selective methods. In most cases this means an extraction/purification step is necessary in sample preparation. In this study, various procedures for the determination of several estrogens (estriol, estradiol, ethynyl estradiol, estrone, and diethylstilbestrol) and progestogens (progesterone, norethindrone, and levonorgestrel) in environmental matrices, including water and river sediment, are described.
