Study on detection methods for triclosan in environmental samples
Author(s): Liyun Yuan and Xiaodong Dong
Abstract: Triclosan (TCS) has been widely used as an antibacterial and antifungal agent in household cleaning and personal care products. The widespread use of TCS in the cleaning products poses a potential risk to the ecological system and human health due to its release into sediments, wastewater and ground water resources causing chronic toxicity to aquatic organisms. Therefore, it is necessary to develop a fast, simple, and efficient method for monitoring TCS in the environment. In this article the studies of detection methods for TCS in the environmental samples in recent years are reviewed.
