Abstract: Benzophenone-3 is the most widely used benzophenone type UV filter, which is lipophilic, light sand bioaccumulative. Benzophenone-3 is widely present in environmental waters and can be detected in humans. Its potential toxicity (especially endocrine disruption) has attracted peoples attention. There are a lot of related data on the exposure of benzophenone-3 in the environment and humans foreign literatures, but there are few studies on related aspects in China. In the view of widespread presence of benzophenone-3 and its endocrine disruption, future researches should focus on its potential toxicity to the population including endocrine disruption and the mechanisms.

Key words: benzophenone-3 (BP-3), environmental exposure, human exposure, endocrine disruption
