Abstract
Bisphenol analogues such as bisphenol A (BPA), a high production volume chemical identified as an endocrine disruptor and toxic to reproduction, are mainly used in thermal receipt papers as a color developer. Due to its effects on health and legal restrictions, BPA is [...] Read more.
Bisphenol analogues such as bisphenol A (BPA), a high production volume chemical identified as an endocrine disruptor and toxic to reproduction, are mainly used in thermal receipt papers as a color developer. Due to its effects on health and legal restrictions, BPA is increasingly replaced by other bisphenols such as Bisphenol S (BPS). In this study, BPA and 4 alternatives including BPS, Bisphenol F (BPF), Bisphenol B (BPB), and Bisphenol AF (BPAF) were analyzed in thermal paper cash receipts using a sensitive LC-MS/MS method. The cash receipts contained almost only BPA and BPS, whereas BPA was found in 67.5% of the samples at a concentration ranging from 0.83% to 1.71%. BPS was detected at lower concentrations than BPA, found in 25% of samples at a concentration ranging from 0.61% to 0.96%. Both of the substances exceeded the EU limit in the thermal receipt paper of 0.02% per weight. No other analogues were detected from any of the samples analyzed here. As the levels identified are higher than the legal limits of the EU regulations, we should develop regulatory rules and restrictions on the use of bisphenols in cash receipts in Bangladesh.

The first virtual Climate Conversations workshop was held on 23 April 2021. The conference was supposed to be an in-person conference on the campus of Xavier University of Louisiana. However, the pandemic posed a challenge. The organizers pivoted and offered the event as a virtual workshop that allowed for international participation from seven different countries. The online opportunity was an all-day thought-provoking workshop where challenges and opportunities presented by climate change and environmental justice scholars were explored. Full article
