Occurrence, toxicity and endocrine disrupting potential of Bisphenol-B and Bisphenol-F: A mini-review

Toxicol Lett. 2019 Sep 15;312:222-227. doi: 10.1016/j.toxlet.2019.05.018. Epub 2019 May 25.


Recent imposition of restriction on the use of Bisphenol-A (BPA) paved the way for entry of its analogues in the market. Bisphenol-B and Bisphenol-F are the major analogues of commercial value. Thus, their increasing production and application make them vulnerable to human exposure. Since these analogues have been recently reported to show toxic properties similar to BPA, so they have attracted remarkable scientific attention. This mini-review summarizes the recent reports on the occurrence, toxicity and endocrine disruption of these two BPA analogues.

Keywords: Bisphenol-A analogues; Bisphenol-B; Bisphenol-F; Endocrine disruption.
