Description
α-Zearalenol is a mycotoxin produced by several species of Fusarium. α-Zearalenol exhibits pronounced estrogenic activity, being 3-fold more active than zearalenone. Contamination of grains, notably maize, by Fusarium species gives rise to high levels of zearalenol and is regarded as an important food quality issue for both human and animal health.

α-Zearalenol is soluble in water, methanol, DMF, DMSO, and has limited solubility in water.
