  Bisphenol A, colorless crystalline solid in the family of organic compounds and used in the manufacture of polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. It is widely known for its tendency to leach from these materials, which has made it a subject of public health and environmental concern. Bisphenol A (BPA) is an organic synthetic compound originally recognized as a potential synthetic estrogen in the s. BPA is considered a possible human endocrine disrupter and is used extensively today in plastics production and in epoxy resins.   Bisphenol A (BPA) is a high production volume chemical that is widely used in the manufacture of consumer products such as polycarbonate plastics, epoxy resin liners of canned foods, some dental sealants and composites, and thermal receipts. Due to its widespread use in consumer products, exposure to BPA is by: Bisphenol A controversy centers on concerns and debates about the biomedical significance of bisphenol A (BPA), which is a precursor to polymers that are used in some consumer products, including some food containers.

Bisphenol A (BPA) is an organic synthetic compound with the chemical formula (CH 3) 2 C(C 6 H 4 OH) 2 belonging to the group of diphenylmethane derivatives and bisphenols, with two hydroxyphenyl is a colorless solid that is soluble in organic solvents, but poorly soluble in water ( wt % at 83 °C).. BPA is a precursor to important plastics, primarily certain Chemical formula: C₁₅H₁₆O₂.   Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical that is present in many products including water bottles, dental fillings, and sports equipment. BPA can imitate the body's hormones and can interfere with many. what is in bisphenol a. industrial chemical that was used in -containers marker #7-lining of canned foods (banned)-polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resin-in cash register receipts. who assesses the safety-FDA-european food safety authority. unconjugated BPA-toxicologically relevant form of bpa. Bisphenol A diglycidyl ether (commonly abbreviated BADGE or DGEBA) is an organic compound used as constituent of epoxy resins. The compound is a colorless solid (commercial samples can appear yellow) that melts slightly above room iations: BADGE; DGEBA.

Bisphenol A is a high production-volume chemical used in the manufacturing of plastics. While the first biological effects of BPA were described more than 75 years ago, a wider picture of the toxicity effects from BPA exposure has recently emerged. In a recent article, vom Saal and Hughes () proposed that a new risk assessment on bisphenol A (BPA) is needed because of the availability of extensive new literature, including “recent epidemiologic evidence that BPA is related to disease in women.” Specifically, the only research that vom Saal and Hughes cited as evidence relating BPA to disease is a study by Cited by:   BPA stands for bisphenol A. BPA is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins since the s. BPA is found in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. Polycarbonate plastics are often used in containers that store food and beverages, such as water bottles.
