The Swedish chemicals agency KEMI published a study identifying 200 chemicals with a chemical structure similar to BPA likely to be on the European market. Among these substances, 37 bisphenols could have endocrine disrupting properties and six of these bisphenols were considered problematic due to their properties and uses. This study is therefore a useful source of information to avoid a "regrettable" substitution by a molecule presenting dangers similar to BPA.
