The continuous upsurge in terrorist activity has generated tremendous demand for innovative tools capable of detecting nitrated organic, inorganic, and peroxide-based explosives. This article directly extends the previous exhaustive review (Electrophoresis 2006, 27, 244-256) and overviews the research activity in the field of microchip and conventional capillary electrophoresis for analysis of a variety of explosive compounds and mixtures in the past two years (middle 2005-middle 2007), with the focus on world-to-chip interfaces and detection techniques.
