The need to determine the migration of toxic unreacted compounds in bisphenol diglycidyl ether epoxy resins prompted us to investigate the HPLC properties of bisphenol F diglycidyl ether and its hydrolysis products in the water-based food simulants 3% (w/v) acetic acid, distilled water and 15% (v/v) ethanol. Peaks were identified by reversed-phase HPLC thermospray mass spectrometry and gas chromatography/mass spectrometry.
