Cover Story (view full-size image): Dithiocarbamate fungicides (DTFs) are widely used to control various fungal diseases in crops and ornamental plants. Maximum residue limits in the order of ppb–ppm are imposed by the current legislation. The specific analytical determination of DTFs is complicated by their low solubility in water and organic solvents. This review summarizes the current analytical procedures used for the analysis of DTF, including chromatography, spectroscopy, and sensor-based methods, and discusses the challenges related to selectivity, sensitivity, and sample preparation. Biosensors based on enzymatic inhibition demonstrated potential as analytical tools for DTFs. Meanwhile, recent studies highlight Raman spectroscopy and various sensors as very promising, provided their selectivity issues are solved. View this paper.
