What are estrenes?
I assume you meant estrone?
Or some other estrogen related hormone derivative probably, right?
Remove capric acid from it? Like, deesterification?
By hydrolysing the ester with a strong base and removing the formed caprate salt of course.

I wonder what for?
Guess that you don't go by the name Lynn for all your life then?
If that is the case, I condemn amateur manipulations on the hormonal system without doctors supervision, especially that sort, and thats why I kept the answer rather general.
Because when I read about amateurs wanting to "play" around with such hormones, I think of something like this: doi: 10.2105/AJPH.2013.301348
And I think thats very serious and dangerous and shouldn't be encouraged at all.

To be fair, I don't think many of us go by our usernames for most of our lives.




Please remember: "Filtrate" is not a verb.
Write up your lab reports the way your instructor wants them, not the way your ex-instructor wants them.

Assuming gender or responding to (assumed) female gender didn't go well here in the past.
