The review deals with analytical methods for determination of plant metallothioneins. Special attention is given to chromatographic and electrophoretic methods and their combination with selected detection techniques (AAS, MS, ICP MS). Very useful in the characterization of metallothioneins are voltammetric methods. Isolation procedures are also discussed.
