Inorganic arsenic, a term which encompasses both As (III) and As (V) species, constitutes the highest toxicological risk associated with arsenic in water in contrast to the organic arsenic species. Different determination methods of inorganic arsenic have been developed over 40 years providing timely and efficient risk assessments of inorganic arsenic contamination world wide. The current report gives an overview of more than 100 papers, regarding existing methods for analysis of As (III) and As (V) in water, including various spectroscopic, ICP and electrochemical techniques. Recent field portable analytical applications are also reviewed.
