A GLP, O.E.C.D. Testing Guideline 111 Hydrolysis as a function of pH study was conducted on the structural analog Bisphenol A Diglycidylether (BADGE) ofBisphenol F Diglycidylether (BPFDGE). Detection of the parent compound, BADGE was by HPLC/UV. Based on the findings from this study, Bisphenol F Diglycidylether is anticipated to have a hydrolytic half-life of approximately 70 to 205 hours at 25 degrees C independent of pH.

Bisphenol F Diglycidylether (BPFDGE) was not readily biodegradable in O.E.C.D. 301 B and 301 D Testing Guideline studies after 28 days of contact with activated sewage sludge. However, this finding does not precludeBisphenol F Diglycidylether from being biodegradable under other environmental conditions including the use of adapted, activated sewage sludge. According to the QSAR, Non-Linear Dependance of Fish Bioconcentration on n- Octanol/Water Partition Coefficient calculation model by Bintein, BPFDGE has a BCF of 150 L/kg and is not bioaccumulative as it is under the 2000 L/kg threshold.

Bisphenol F Diglycidylether was assessed for potential to bind to sewage sludge and soil by an O.E.C.D. Testing Guideline 121 study with GLP compliance. The HPLC estimated Log Koc for Bisphenol F Diglycidylether was 3.65 under the conditions of the study. This suggests minimal potential to adsorb to sewage sludge and soil.
