Abstract

Dioxins are by-products of industrial processes but can also result from volcanic eruptions or forest fires (Rappe and Buser, 1981; Safe et al., 1985). The worst production is due to incomplete burning of uncontrolled waste incinerators from solid and hospital waste. Dioxins are reputed to be among the most toxic organic compounds. The toxicity of these compounds is due to their chemical stability and the absorption in fat tissues permits to endure a long time into the body of humans and animals, biomagnifying through the food chain (WHO, 1987). Chronic exposure of animals to dioxins has resulted in several types of cancer. The aim of the present research work was to develop new and fast methods based on nanobiosensors to detect environmental toxins (e.g. dioxins).
