Current State of Use and the Risks of Bisphenols: A Minireview

Bisphenol A (BPA), known as a typical endocrine disruptor, has been used commercially and widely for plastics and epoxy resins. BPA-based plastic is used extensively for the production of water


Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical substance which is produced in great quantities globally and of which serious negative effects on endocrine system are suspected. It’s a commonly used color developer

Distribution and Potential Transdermal Human Intake of Bisphenol A and Bisphenol S from Thermal Receipt Papers in Korea Market

Bisphenol A (BPA) has been widely used in thermal receipt papers as a color developer; however, it has been substituted with alternative chemicals such as bisphenol S (BPS) due to the global

Analytical determination of bisphenol A (BPA) and bisphenol analogues in paper products by GC-MS/MS

  • A. JurekE. Leitner

    Food additives & contaminants. Part A, Chemistry, analysis, control, exposure & risk assessment
  • 2017
A calculation of the ‘worst-case’ scenario assuming a maximum potential migration of 100% of the analytes into food showed that the analysed products can be assumed to be safe regarding the migration of bisphenols.



Bisphenol s, a new bisphenol analogue, in paper products and currency bills and its association with bisphenol a residues.

Among the paper types analyzed, thermal receipt papers were found to be the major sources of human exposure to BPS, and the first report on the occurrence of BPS in paper products and currency bills is reported.

Endocrine activity of alternatives to BPA found in thermal paper in Switzerland.

Levels of bisphenol-A in thermal paper receipts from Belgium and estimation of human exposure.

Biodegradation of Bisphenol A, Bisphenol F and Bisphenol S in Seawater

The biodegradation behaviors of three BPs, namely BPA, BPF and BPS, in seawater were investigated using TOC Handai and river (sea) die-away methods, which are both a kind of river-die-away test.

Bisphenol A: emissions from point sources.

Widespread occurrence of bisphenol A in paper and paper products: implications for human exposure.

Among paper products, thermal receipt papers contributed to the majority (>98%) of the exposures and daily intake of BPA through dermal absorption was estimated based on the measured BPA concentrations and handling frequency of paper products.

Concentration of bisphenol A in thermal paper

Abstract Bisphenol A (BPA) is widely used as a color developer in thermal paper. Thermal paper is ubiquitous in daily life due to its use in cash register receipts, so opportunities for human contact

Formation of chlorinated derivatives of bisphenol A in waste paper recycling plants and their estrogenic activities

High concentrations of bisphenol A were detected in the effluent from several pulping processes for waste paper containing thermal paper and/or other printed paper. Chlorinated derivatives of

Bisphenol A (BPA) and its source in foods in Japanese markets

The results imply that the main source of human exposure to BPA is food from cans with linings that contain high percentages of BPA as an additive or an unforeseen contaminant.
