A simple and sensitive analysis method based on reverse phase (RP) HPCL with flourescence detector was developed for simultaneous determination of bisphenol A (BPA), bisphenol F (BPF), bisphenol A diglycidyl ether (BADGE), bisphenol F diglycidyl ether (BFDGE), and their degradation products, $BADGE{\cdot}H_2O$, $BADGE{\cdot}2H_2O$, $BFDGE{\cdot}H_2O$, $BFDGE{\cdot}2H_2O$, $BADGE{\cdot}HCl{\cdot}H_2O$, $BADGE{\cdot}HCl$, $BADGE{\cdot}2HCl$, $BFDGE{\cdot}HCl{\cdot}H_2O$, $BFDGE{\cdot}HCl$ and $BFDGE{\cdot}2HCl$, which were hydrolyzed and chlorinated forms of BADGE and BFDGE, in canned foods and food simulants. These compounds were identified by GC/MSD with $MSTFA-NH_4I-DTE$ derivatization. Recovery study was performed at each 100 ng/mL levels of BPA, BPF, BADGE and BFDGE added to canned foods and food simulants. This method was resulted in recovery of $90{\sim}114%$ with relative standard deviation of $4.1{\sim}7.0%$, detection limits of $6{\sim}11$ ng/mL and quantitation limits of $12{\sim}18\;ng/mL$. Calibration curves were linear with correlatin coefficients of 0.997 for BPF, 0.996 for BPA, 0.9987 for BFDGE, and 0.9989 for BADGE.
