3,3'-Dinitrobisphenol A is an organic compound with the formula (HO(O2N)C6H3)2C(CH3)2. It is a yellow-orange solid prepared by nitration of bisphenol A [1][1][2]


3,3'-Dinitrobisphenol A is found to be genotoxic in male ICR mice on a micronucleus test.[3] Its estrogenic potential is not known however shown some binding to estrogen-related receptor gamma to an extent.[4]
