The Uptake by Plants of Diethylstilboestrol and of Its Glucuronide

B. Gregers Hansen

    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    The uptake of diethylstilboestrol and its glucuronide by plants could, under certain circumstances, present a potential health hazard. The relative uptake of the two compounds has therefore been studied in rye grass, red clover, mushrooms, and maize in pot and water culture experiments. It is concluded that the uptake of DES and its glucuronide in these plants is too small to have a practical importance.
