Under the background of rapid development in nuclear power, strengthen the knowledge of 135Cs analysis and application is extremely necessary. Therefore, based on published literatures and materials, the source term and instrumental analysis of 135Cs were summarized and addressed. Different chemical separation methods and mass spectrometry techniques (ICP-MS, TIMS, RIMS and AMS) for radiocesium determination were compared in this review. In addition, the obtained limit of detection and chemical yield in reported papers were also compared. Finally, we discussed the potential application of 135Cs/137Cs isotopic ratio in the environment with emphasis on Fukushima nuclear accident and prospects in accurate determination, migration behavior and application of 135Cs/137Cs isotopic ratio for future research.
