- Beside the well characterized bisphenol A, bisphenol F was recently detected in foodstuff (mustard). In this study, the formation mechanism of bisphenol F from sinalbin was verified. After optimizing the LC–MS/MS- method, the appearance of the different Bisphenol F-isomers in various mustard samples were evaluated. The highest concentrations were found in medium hot mustard, the lowest were found in hot mustard. In all samples, 4,4′-bisphenol F was quantified as the most frequent isomer. Only a few mustard samples showed 2,4′-bisphenol F in low concentrations.
