In recent years, endocrine-disrupting compounds (EDCs) have become a chemical group of special concern due to their ability to interfere with the hormonal system. Bisphenol A (BPA) is a high-production volume industrial chemical mainly used as a monomer in the production of polycarbonate plastics (~80%) and epoxy resins (~18%). Both of these polymers are widely used as food contact materials (viz. polycarbonate plastics in reusable food and drink containers, in tableware, and in water pipes, and epoxy resins as inner coatings of cans and lids of glass jars and bottles for food and beverages). Bisphenol A (BPA) has attracted significant concern because of its typical endocrine-disrupting effects and its widespread occurrence.
Common steps in sample treatment for most of the analytical methods reported for mixtures of bisphenols include sample pretreatment, extraction of analytes from the matrix, cleanup of the extracts to remove interferences, and concentration to achieve the desired sensitivity. Incontestable progress has been made in recent years regarding the development of the techniques of preparation of samples for analysis such as QuEChERS (Quick, Easy, Cheap, Effective, Rugged, and Safe), solid phase extraction (SPE), solid phase microextraction (SPME), stir bar sorptive extraction (SBSE), hallow-fiber liquid phase microextraction (HFLPME), dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction (DLLME), and focused ultrasonic solid–liquid extraction (FUSLE).
The most efficient approach to bisphenols analysis involves the use of chromatographic methods. The following chromatographic methods are most frequently applied in environmental/biological samples and food analysis: high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), ultrahigh-performance liquid chromatography (UPLC), and gas chromatography (GC).
The Special Issue is planned as a topic that presents, in a properly structured manner, up-to-date, state-of-the-art information on the very important field of high-performance chromatographic techniques coupled with modern detection techniques such as mass spectrometry (MS), tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS), fluorescence detection (FLD), and diode-array detection (DAD).
Chromatographic techniques coupled with modern detection techniques can find broad applications in the separation, identification, and quantification of bisphenol A (BPA) and important BPA structural analogs, such as bisphenol S (BPS), bisphenol F (BPF), bisphenol B (BPB), bisphenol C (BPC), bisphenol E (BPE), bisphenol M (BPM), bisphenol P (BPP), bisphenol Z (BPZ), bisphenol AF (BPAF), bisphenol AP (BPAP), bisphenol BP (BPBP), bisphenol FL (BPFL), dihydroxydiphenyl ether (DHDPE), and bisphenol A diglycidyl ether (BADGE).
I warmly invite our colleagues to submit their original contributions to this Special Issue in order to provide recent updates regarding chromatographic methods for bisphenols analysis related to food, biological and environmental samples, and highly processed products, that will be of interest to our readers.
I would be delighted if you could respond to confirm your contribution and the proposed title by 15 July 2019 to assist in planning the whole project. In the case of review articles, an additional brief (1–2 pages) description of the topic including a draft index is required. This preliminary step is essential to avoid overlapping of topics. The degree of novelty and the significance of the research will be scrutinized prior to the peer-reviewing process.Dr. Tomasz Tuzimski (Ph.D., Adjunct Professor)
