Bisphenol A (a.k.a. BPA, Diphenylolpropane) is a synthetic organic compound, which is colorless, flammable, solid at room temperature, with a mild phenolic odor, soluble in organic solvents and poorly soluble in water (0.344 wt% at 83 ºC). It was first synthesized in 1891 by Dianin from the acid catalysed condensation of phenol and acetone and it has been produced industrially to be used as a starting material in the synthesis of epoxy resins since about 1920.
