Author(s): Liyun Yuan and Xiaodong Dong
Abstract: Xylitol is a naturally occurring five-carbon containing sugar alcohol. It has attracted a lot of attention in the pharmaceutical, cosmetics, food, and dental industries due to its high sweetening ability, anticariogenic properties and possibilities for use in insulin-dependent diabetics. Thus, the establishment of a simple and rapid method for the determination of xylitol with high selectivity and sensitivity is of great significance to people's health. In this article the studies of detection methods for xylitol in recent years are reviewed.
