Unsymmetrical dimethylhydrazine (UDMH) is an excellent liquid rocket propellant, but its toxicity is strong, which is harmful to human health and seriously pollutes the environment. However, the spectrophotometric method for detecting UDMH in the current Chinese national standards can’t meet the detection requirements under high safety standards. This article not only reviews the research methods at home and abroad, but also discusses the advantages and disadvantages of these methods.
