IJMS, Vol. 22, Pages 10569: Comparison of Quantitative Detection Methods Based on Molecular Fluorescence Spectroscopy and Chromatographic Techniques Used for the Determination of Bisphenol Compounds
International Journal of Molecular Sciences doi: 10.3390/ijms221910569
Analytical methods using the fluorescence properties of bisphenols (BPA, BPF and BPS) and their complexes with β-cyclodextrin and methyl-β-cyclodextrin were developed. The methods were applied for the analysis of thermal paper and canned food. Their performance was compared with a standard HPLC approach with a diode array and fluorescence detections. For comparison purposes, basic validation parameters (linear range, limit of detection, sensitivity, precision) were evaluated. It was concluded the developed methods facilitate fast and cost-effective determination of three bisphenol species in liquid samples, similar to the HPLC performance. They are also environmentally friendly. BPA, BPF and BPS can be routinely determined with the presented approach.
