    Beta-zearalanol

    $109.73 - $384.02
    ß-Zearalanol is a minor analogue of the zearalenone family of resorcinyl macrocyclic lactones, produced by several species of Fusarium. Like the other zearalenones, ß-zearalanol exhibits estrogenic activity in animals. ß-Zearalanol was investigated as a growth promotant for animals but did not advance to commercialisation.

    ß-Zearalanol is solublei in ethanol, methanol, DMF and DMSO and has limited water solubility.
