Recent advances in extraction, purification and detection methods of 2-alkylcyclobutanones (2-ACBs) were reviewed through comparing analysis of the EU standard (EN1785:2003). Using of direct extraction with acetonitrile, purification with commercial solid phase extraction columns and detection with GC-MS for 2-ACBs is probably the potential method which can be alternative of EN1785. The methods of SPME (Solid-phase microextraction), pre-column derivation and indirect ELISA (Indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) have many advantages including saving analyzing time and organic solvent, and lowering detection limit. However, the relevant operating conditions need to be further optimized.
