Abstract: Research of aptasensors based on advanced materials such as Au nanoparticles (AuNPs), graphene and graphene nanocomposites, and quantum dots (QDs) for the quick detection of mycotoxins is one of the emerging hotspots and trends in the field of mycotoxin detection in recent years. The superior optical, mechanical and electrical properties of advanced materials combined with aptasensors greatly increase the sensitivity and selectivity of mycotoxin detection. This paper summarizes the aptamer sequences of major mycotoxins reported in the literature in the last decade, and reviews the application of aptasensors based on advanced materials in rapid detection of mycotoxins. The main existing problems are also proposed. We hope that this review could provide the basis and inspiration for the development of mycotoxin detection methods.

Key words: aptamers, mycotoxins, sensor, advanced materials, rapid detection
