Applications
Bisphenol A is an important monomer used in the production of polycarbonate plastics which is utilized to make various consumer goods like water bottles, sports equipment, medical devices, eyeglass lenses, house hold electronics, compact discs (CDs) and digital versatile discs (DVDs). Bisphenol A containing epoxy resins are used to make lining in water pipes. It is used as a precursor to prepare flame retardant tetrabromobispheonl A, polysulfones and polyether ketones, which are antioxidants in some plasticizers. It acts as a polymerization inhibitor in poly vinyl chloride (PVC).

Solubility
Soluble in aqueous alkaline solution, acetic acid, alcohol and acetone. Slightly soluble in carbon tetrachloride. It has poor solubility in water.

Notes
Incompatible with acid anhydrides, acid chlorides, strong bases and strong oxidizing agents.
