Abstract: A simple, low cost, fast and sensitive method is reported for the determination of the four endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) 4-tert-butylphenol, 4-tert-octylphenol, bisphenol A and 17β-estradiol using pentafluoropyridine as the derivatizing reagent. These EDCs were determined by simultaneous extraction and derivatization in a solid phase analytical derivatization (SPAD) technique without the aid of any phase transfer catalyst (PTC) or an ion-pair mechanism. Recoveries of analytes as their tetrafluoropyrid…
