Removal of bisphenol A from wastewater by physical, chemical and biological remediation techniques. A review
Bisphenol A is a well-known endocrine-disrupting compound that is commonly detected in industrial effluents and wastewater treatment plants. It is extensively used in the production of polycarbonate
Bisphenols and Thyroid Hormone
This review examined human epidemiological studies to investigate the association between BPA exposure and thyroid hormone levels, and analyzed in vivo and in vitro experiments to identify the causal relationship and its mechanism of action.
Determination of bisphenol A, its chlorinated derivatives and structural analogues in vegetables by focussed ultrasound solid-liquid extraction and GC–MS/MS
Environmental context Following stringent regulations, based on environmental health concerns, for controlling the production and usage of bisphenol A, several analogues have been developed as


Bisphenol A and other alkylphenols in the environment - occurrence, fate, health effects and analytical techniques
Bisphenol A and other alkylphenols are widely used in plastic and other industrial consumer products. Release of these compounds into the aquatic environment during their manufacture, use and
Occurrence of bisphenol A in surface and drinking waters and its physicochemical removal technologies
Bisphenol A (BPA), an endocrine disrupting compound, has caused wide public concerns due to its wide occurrence in environment and harmful effects. BPA has been detected in many surface waters and
In-vitro oxidation of bisphenol A: Is bisphenol A catechol a suitable biomarker for human exposure to bisphenol A?
The findings suggest that BPA catechol may not be a suitable biomarker of environmental exposure to BPA, but could be used to confirm BPA exposure in special populations or in situations when urine specimens were potentially contaminated with BPA.
Bisphenol A and the related alkylphenol contaminants in crustaceans and their potential bioeffects
Bisphenol A is widely used in plastic and other industrial consumer products. Release of bisphenol A and its analogues into the aquatic environment during manufacture, use and disposal has been a
Comparative study of the endocrine-disrupting activity of bisphenol A and 19 related compounds.
The results suggest that the 4-hydroxyl group of the A- phenyl ring and the B-phenyl ring of BPA derivatives are required for these hormonal activities, and substituents at the 3,5-positions of the phenyl rings and the bridging alkyl moiety markedly influence the activities.
QSAR Models of the in vitro Estrogen Activity of Bisphenol A Analogs
A series of quantitative structure-activity relationship models are presented to describe the in vitro hormone activity (estrogen receptor binding, reporter gene induction, and cell proliferation) of bisphenol A and 24 of its analogs, suggesting that it may be possible to use such structure activities to develop bispenols that are useful monomers with reduced hormone activity.
Global Assessment of Bisphenol A in the Environment
The utility of coordinating global sensing of environmental contaminants efforts through integration of environmental monitoring and specimen banking to identify regions for implementation of more robust environmental assessment and management programs is highlighted.
Bisphenol a and its chlorinated derivatives in human colostrum.
The hypothesis that chlorine present in drinking water may react with BPA to form chlorinated derivatives (ClxBPA) to be taken into account in human health risk assessment is confirmed.
