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
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.
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.
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.
Occurrence and profiles of bisphenol analogues in municipal sewage sludge in China.
Tracing thyroid hormone-disrupting compounds: database compilation and structure-activity evaluation for an effect-directed analysis of sediment
A review and chemical characterization of organic compounds that have been tested for their capacity to bind competitively to the thyroid hormone transport protein transthyretin (TTR) shows the need for databases containing compound-specific toxicological properties.
Oxidative removal of bisphenol A by manganese dioxide: efficacy, products, and pathways.
The exceptional efficiency of MnO2 in removing BPA represents a potential use of Mn O2 to treat waters containing phenolic compounds and also suggests a potentially important role of oxide-facilitated abiotic transformations in BPA attenuation in natural soil and sediment environments.
Pharmaco- and toxicokinetics of selected exogenous and endogenous estrogens: A review of the data and identification of knowledge gaps
A review of the current state of the science on the potential for EACs to interfere with endocrine activity, factors which contribute to endocrine-related clinical outcomes, and existing knowledge gaps is assessed.
