Resumen:
Una universidad turca ha desarrollado nanopolímeros magnéticos para eliminar disruptores endocrinos en el agua. Estos nanopolímeros se emplean para eliminar estrona en el agua recogiendo los residuos tóxicos. Los nanopolímeros son de utilidad para prevenir la contaminación ambiental reduciendo los efectos a largo plazo de la estrona en el ambiente. Se trata de un producto reutilizable, y por lo tanto rentable, biocompatible y amigable con la naturaleza. Se buscan socios industriales o universidades para continuar con el desarrollo de los nanopolímeros y establecer acuerdos de cooperación en materia de investigación.

Removal of endocrine disruptor chemicals
Summary:
A Turkish university has developed magnetic nanopolymers for removing endocrine disruptor chemicals in water. These nanopolymers are being used for removing the estrone from water by collecting the toxic residues. Partners from industry or university are welcome to collaborate in further development of these nanopolymers. The university aims to further develop these nanopolymers with either R-Y-D institutions or companies under research cooperation agreement.
Description:
A Turkish university has developed endocrine disruptor that cleans the water from estrone. These nanopolymers are useful in order to prevent environmental pollution by reducing the long term effects of estrone in environment. Endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) affect the reproduction systems and may be responsible for oligospermia, sperm structure abnormality, increased uterus size, premature puberty and are causing a variety of problems including interference with neurologic, and immunologic function, and even carcinogenesis. In this work, magnetic nanopolymers with specific recognition sites for target molecule, estrone, one of endoctrine distrupting chemicals and biologically active form of estrogens, were generated by molecular imprinting technique. The product has a novel monomer MAPA (N-metacryloilamidophenylalanin), which has not used before for this aim. Its selective binding properties are due to specific interactions between this novel monomer, MAPA, and an endocrine disrupting hormone. The molecularly imprinted magnetic nanopolymers are well-dispersed in aqueous media that contain endocrine disrupting hormones and are separated from that media easily due to their magnetic properties.

Partners from industry or university are welcome to collaborate in further development of these nanopolymers.Companies and research institutions for further development of the products under research cooperation agreement are sought.
Advantages and Innovations:
-Suggested product is reusable so it gives cost-effectiveness advantages.
-It is a biocompatible and nature friendly product.
-Because of its nano-size and spherical shape binding effectiveness is increased.
-Endocrine disruptor hormones could be minimized by using this material.
-This product gives to chance developing advanced removal of endocrine disrupting hormones from several areas by combined advantages of nanotechnology and molecularly imprinting methods.
