Abstract

© 2015 Her Majesty the Queen in Right of Australia as represented by: Bradley Patterson. Benzotriazoles (BTs) are an emerging class of environmental pollutants used in a wide range of industrial applications. Benzotriazole (BTri) and 5-methylbenzotriazole (5-MeBT) have recently been detected in water supplies around the world, and are thus attracting the attention of many environmental researchers. The focus of this review is on assessing contemporary methods to detect BTs using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), and providing information regarding their occurrence, degradation and toxicity within the environment.
