The term bisphenol summarizes special chemical compounds that consist of a combination of two different phenols. In addition to the relatively well-known bisphenol A (BPA), which is widely used as a plasticizer in plastics, there are, for example, bisphenol B, bisphenol F, bisphenol G and bisphenol M. Many bisphenols are associated with health problems such as disorders of the hormone balance and reduced fertility. For example, the use of bisphenol A in baby bottles is prohibited today. (fp)
