Bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical component used in the manufacture of plastics, is commonly introduced to and detected in aquatic environments. This is the first study conducted to understand the distribution of BPA in the marine and freshwaters of Turkey. The purpose of this study is to report BPA concentrations measured from a time-series conducted in coastal waters of Erdemli and regional rivers located in the northeastern Mediterranean region. Furthermore, seawater samples obtained from other… 
Effect of the plastic pollutant bisphenol A on the biology of aquatic organisms: A meta‐analysis
Overall BPA exposure affected aquatic organisms negatively, and had negative effects on the cardiovascular system, development, growth and survival, and invertebrates and amphibians seem to be particularly affected.
Emerging Pollutants in Moroccan Wastewater: Occurrence, Impact, and Removal Technologies
The rapid growth of anthropogenic activities in recent decades has resulted in the appearance of numerous new chemical compounds in the environment, known as “emerging pollutants” (EPs) or
Occurrence and Estrogenic Potency of Bisphenol Analogs in Sewage Sludge from Wastewater Treatment Plants in Central China
Overall, although being partially replaced by other analogs, BPA is still widely used in Henan province, and the largest contributor with emission flux of 45.3 kg year−1.
Acute and chronic effects of Bisphenol A on hormonal disruption and histological alterations in the freshwater clam, Caelatura nilotica (Cailliaud, 1827)
Freshwater bivalves play important ecological roles, especially in shallow waters; rivers, lakes, and estuaries; and they cannot escape pollution and therefore serve as sessile bioindicators.
Can Antioxidants Reduce the Toxicity of Bisphenol?
The preliminary results that are described in this paper are promising, however, it should be emphasized that further studies are required to determine the optimal dosage and treatment regimen to counteract BPA toxicity.


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.
preliminary investigation of bisphenol A in sediments and suspended matter in Kaštela Bay (Adriatic Sea, Croatia)
The occurrence, seasonal and vertical distribution of bisphenol A (BPA) was investigated in the sediments and suspended matter sampled in Kastela Bay, Adriatic Sea, Croatia. Granulometric composition
Sources and Properties of BPA
BPA was first synthesized by Aleksandr P. Dianin in 1891 and was investigated for potential commercial use in the 1930s during a search for synthetic estrogens. In the 1940s and 50s, uses for BPA
Bisphenol A: acute aquatic toxicity
According to current U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standard evaluation procedures, bisphenol A was moderately to slightly toxic to the fish and invertebrates tested, with LC50 or EC50 values of from 1.1 to 10 mg/L.
Fate of Bisphenol A in Terrestrial and Aquatic Environments.
Biological and nonbiological processes that lead to BPA transformation and degradation are summarized, and research needs to advance predictive understanding of the longevity of BPA and its transformation products in environmental systems are identified.
Bisphenol A in the Aquatic Environment and Its Endocrine-Disruptive Effects on Aquatic Organisms
This report reviews the literature concerning contamination routes and degradation of BPA in the aquatic environment and its endocrine-disruptive effects on aquatic organisms.
Biomarkers of Exposure and Reproduction-Related Effects in Mussels Exposed to Endocrine Disruptors
The results confirm the usefulness of peroxisome proliferation as a biomarker of exposure to organic contaminants in mussels and indicate that changes in Vtg-like proteins could be used as potential indicator of pollutant effects on mussel reproduction.
