Environmental Phenol Analytes

Free and bound forms of environmental phenols exist, as the parent phenols are metabolized or conjugated prior to excretion in urine. For more details see Exposure to Environmental Phenols.

Biospecimens: Volume requirements – typically 0.1-1.0 mL of urine

Core analytes (subset of analytes that will be measured and reported by any targeted HHEAR Lab Hub that provides Environmental Phenol analysis in urine):

  • Benzophenone-1
  • Benzophenone-3 (Oxybenzone; BP3)
  • Bisphenol A (BPA)
  • Bisphenol F (BPF)
  • Bisphenol S (BPS)
  • 4,4'-cyclo-hexylidenebisphenol
  • 2,4-Dichlorophenol
  • 2,5-Dichlorophenol (DCP25)
  • 4-hydroxybenzoic acid
  • 4-hydroxybenzophenone
  • Parabens:
    • Butyl paraben (BUPB)
    • Ethyl paraben (ETPB)
    • Methyl paraben (MEPB)
    • Propyl paraben (PRPB)
  • Pentachlorophenol (PCP)
  • Triclocarban (TCC)
  • 2,4,5-Trichlorophenol
  • 2,4,6-Trichlorophenol
  • Triclosan (TCS)

Other Environmental Phenol analytes (analytes that can also be measured depending on the Lab Hub and the requested analytes) include but are not limited to:

  • 2,2'-bis(4-hydroxyphenyl)butane
  • 2-Chlorophenol
  • 3-Chlorophenol
  • 4-Chlorophenol

  • 3,4-dihydroxy-benzoic acid methyl ester
  • 2,2'-dihydroxy-methoxybenzophenone
  • 4,4'-(hexafluoroisopropylidene)-diphenol
  • 4,4′-(1,4-phenylenediisopropylidene)bisphenol
  • 4,4'-(1-phenylethylidene)bisphenol
  • Protocatechuic acid ethyl ester
  • 2,3,4,5-Tetrachlorophenol

Environmental Samples: Volume requirements – up to one gram of dust or a silicone wristband

  • Bisphenol A (BPA)
  • 2,4 dibromophenol (DBP24)
  • Parabens:
    • Butyl paraben (BUPB)
    • Ethyl paraben (ETPB)
    • Methyl paraben (MEPB)
