Endocrine disruptors (ED) are chemicals constantly detected in water and wastewater. Ethinylestradiol (EE2) is the principal synthetic hormone used in oral contraceptive formulations and other hormonal drugs, making part of the EDs list. Electrochemical processes such as electro-oxidation and electrocoagulation are an alternative for EE2 removal from water. In this context, this study aimed to evaluate the efficiency of different anodes on the electrochemical removal of EE2 from water samples. The anodes herein used, were aluminum, for electrocoagulation, and graphite, copper and titanium, for electro-oxidation. The best result was obtained for the titanium anode, which removed 86.21% in 40 minutes of treatment. It is concluded that the electro-oxidation is an alternative method, low cost and effective for remediation of estrogen ethinylestradiol
