Abstract: The issue of endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) in the environment is serious concern. A number of scientific publications have suggested a decline in human semen quality, an increase in testicular abnormalities and breast cancer over the past 50 years. Some of the EDCs are highly persist and easily accumulate in adipose tissue, blood and breast milk via food chain. The ability to undergo long-range atmospheric transport means that they represent the cross boundary problem such as forest fires. Potential hazards and health effect posed by endocrine disruptors has increasing awareness and an urgent need has been recognized to establish new methods. Lack of data for various environmental matrices including seawater, rainwater, body fluids and sediment samples of these contaminations is indication of shortage of suitable, simple analytical techniques. The aim of this work is to develop relatively simple, efficient extraction procedures for EDCs and applied to environmental samples.
