Author(s): Suhuan Wu, Siyue Jia, Mengya Shi and Xiaodong Dong
Abstract: Ractopamine (RAC) is a kind of phenol amine β2-agonist, which can significantly increase the lean meat percentage and improve the feed conversion ratio. So RAC as a new growth-promoting feed additive may be used in animals, but when the accumulated dose of RAC exceeds a certain value in our body, it is easy to have some toxic reactions such as trigger muscle tremor, tachycardia, and muscle pain. Therefore, it is extremely important to detect the RAC content for the assurance of consumer health. A number of analytical methods have been developed to provide fast, sensitive, selective and reliable quantification in complex samples. In this article the studies of detection methods for RAC in recent years are reviewed.
