Synchronous fluorescence is one of more perspective methods for simultaneous analysis of organic multicomponent samples, because of remarkable advantages of selectivity improvement and spectral simplification over conventional fluorescence spectroscopy. Also, this method is less time consuming and as result is not so destructive for samples. Combination of synchronous fluorescence with other techniques, such as derivative technique and multivariant analysis, gives enhancing of resolution and selectivity of method. Review of synchronous fluorescence presents mainly the analysis of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), which are very known because of its mutagenic and carcinogenic properties. Representative examples of different mode synchronous fluorescence are summarized. An emphasis is placed on the development of Optimal Path Synchronous Fluorescence approach for the determination of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons mixture and amino acids mixture.
