  • Environmental Monitoring: Phosphate tests are extensively used in environmental monitoring to assess the levels of phosphate in water bodies. These tests help in evaluating the impact of agricultural runoff, industrial discharge, and wastewater treatment on water quality. Recent studies have focused on using selective colorimetric nano-sensing solutions to determine phosphate ions in drinking water samples, highlighting their importance in ensuring safe and clean water supplies (Salem and Draz, International Journal of Environmental Analytical Chemistry, 2020).
