Development of an instant on-site visual detection method for 2,4,6 trinitrotoluene (TNT) has become a significant requirement of the hour towards a secured society and a greener environment. Despite momentous advances in the respective field, a portable and reliable method for quick and selective detection of TNT still poses a challenge to many reasons attributing to inappropriate usage in subordinate areas and untrained personnel. The recent effort on the fluorescent based detection represents as one of easy method in terms of fast response time and simple on/off detection. Therefore, this chapter provides a consolidation of information relating to recent advances in fluorescence based TNT detection.Further, the main focus will be towards advances in the nanofibers based TNT detection and their reason to improving thesensitivity. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015.
