Precise detection of the causal metabolite for disease, pollutant etc causing abnormality in human body and environment is the key to cure the defects caused by them. In this regard biosensors are the novel molecule used to detect a particular molecule with unbeatable precision. These biosensor have a large applications, be it in the field of agriculture, medicine, ecology etc. Detection of pollutant causing severe health hazards is one of the hot topics now a day. Recent advances in the biosensors development over the past few years have paved the way for future researchers to further modify these biosensing elements to enhance them to the extent that would be able to detect even a small amount of environment pollutant. Here in this review we are focusing toward the use of these biosensors in detecting the pollutant causing environmental pollution.
