bisphenol a and chemical migration testing
Migration Testing Research on Bisphenol A

Migration research seeks to quantify the amount of bisphenol A that is released from polymers using BPA as a building block under certain exposure conditions. Migration data must be interpreted with caution since many of the tests described in the literature were conducted under test conditions that are not representative of real-life conditions of use.
