    β-Zearalenol is a non-steroidal estrognic mycotoxin produced by Fusarium spp. Like other Zearalenones, β-Zearalenol has pronounced estrogenic activity.  Contamination of grains by Fusarium species results in high levels of Zearalenol and poses a food safety issue.   It can be used as a biological reactant in synthesis of amino glycoside nucleotides, glucuronides, and zearalenone.

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