Abstract: Deoxynivalenol (DON), a type B trichothecene mycotoxin mainly produced by Fusarium graminearum infecting cereal crops such as wheat. DON is currently the most common mycotoxin found in cereal and cereal products, which has obvious toxicity and can cause acute or chronic toxic effects on both animals and humans through consumption of contaminated feeds and foods. Therefore, in order to protect consumers’ health and minimize economic loss, it is urgent to establish efficient, simple, and rapid analytical techniques to detect DON and its derivatives in agricultural products. In this review, the common analytical methods for detecting DON and its derivatives qualitatively and quantitatively are summarized. The highlights of newly emerging technologies and their potential applications are also discussed. The information provided in this review will be used for the scientific selection of an appropriate method for detecting DON and its derivatives.
