This page has the purpose of collecting several approaches to create the hormones necessary, as well as provide information about art projects that try to do so.


Synthesis and extraction approaches

Ways to synthesise or extract estrogen:

Synthesis from Cholesterol

https://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/ja01215a001

Extraction from Horse Urine

Historically the first approach to extract estrogen was the extraction of estrogen from pregnant horse urine. The process is straightforward and is well described in literature: http://www.jbc.org/content/126/2/663.full.pdf

The conjugated estrogen is also sold under the brand name Premarin (a contraction of "pregnant mares' urine"). Premarin has more side effects compared with other forms of estrogen.

Biotechnological production

Another way to produce estrogen is using tissue cultures:
