Abstract: Atomic spectrometric methods are expensive and not suitable for in situ analysis due to the ponderous and complicated instruments. Contrary to electrochemical methods as an alternative to these spectroscopic techniques have been accepted as the efficient methods to detect heavy metal ions due to their excellent sensitivity, short analysis time, portability, and low cost. This study provided information on the novel instruments capable of real-time and in situ detection of heavy metal levels in studied soils and plants which were of importance in dealing with heavy metal pollution in the environment. It further provided an opportunity to the stakeholders to adopt to new methods of detecting heavy metals to reduce pollution in Kisii County.
