Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Additional information

Phototransformation in air:

After exposure to air, Bisphenol A will be rapidly degraded by photochemical processes. The rate constant for indirect photolysis in air (OH-mediated photodegradation) is 80.6E-12 cm3 / (molecule*sec) and half-life is 0.13 days, assuming 12 hours daylight and a hydroxyl radical concentration of 1.5E6 molecules per cm3.


Based on the molecular structure of Bisphenol A, hydrolysis is not expected under environmentally relevant conditions.

Phototransformation in water:

Bisphenol A has a half-life of 0.5 to 10 days for direct photolysis and 0.7 to 1.3 days for indirect photolysis.
