Abstract:Bisphenols, as important organic chemical materials, have been widely applied to many fields. However, bisphenols are endocrine disrupting chemicals and the heavy use of bisphenols may induce the rapid growth of some diseases based on the toxicity evaluation. With been used in great quantities, bisphenols residues are widely detected in various environmental samples. Due to the stable structure, they are difficult to be completely degraded in the nature. Bisphenols could be harmful to the ecological security and human health, they need to be effectively removed. The physical and chemical remediation methods may easily to cause the secondary pollution. Microbial degradation is one of the methods for bisphenols degradation because of its eminent characteristics of innocuity and easy to access. The toxicological effects and microbial degradation mechanisms of bisphenols are summarized in this paper.

Key word: bisphenols;toxicological effects;microbial degradation;biodegradation mechanism
