Luminescence methods, which include fluorescence, phosphorescence, bioluminescence and chemiluminescence have been employed as analytical methods for a variety of environmental pollutants, to measure biomasss, and to elucidate toxic and mutagenic effects. The recent analytical literature on the application of luminescence techniques to measurement of various classes of environmentally-significant chemicals has been reviewed. The advantages and disadvantages of luminescence for field screening measurements are discussed. The major advantages projected for luminescence versus traditional methods are greater to sample throughout, simplicity, and in some cases, greater selectivity and sensitivity.
