The determination of the amines in the environment is very important. In this review, different methods for the analysis of the amines in the environment are discussed. Different aspects of the toxicity of the amines are discussed in detail. Methods for the sampling of the amines in air, soil, and water are discussed. Though there different techniques for the analysis of the amines only high performance liquid chromatography, gas chromatography, and capillary electrophoresis are discussed here. The different draw back, of these methods and their advantages are discussed in detail. The salient feature of the review is the discussion on the application of these methods for the determination of the amines in soil, water, and air, i.e., environmental samples.
