Enantioselective analyses of the chiral pollutants are important as the enantiomers differ in their toxicities to pests and human beings. The chiral analyses only provide the exact data on the enantioselective toxicities. In this article, capillary electrophoresis has been used for the analyses of the chiral pollutants in the environmental and biological matrices. Attempts have been made to describe the state-of-the-art of the enantiomeric separation of the chiral pollutants by using capillary electrophoresis. The different types of chiral pollutants and their toxicities have been discussed. The sample preparation and capillary electrophoresis analyses have also been provided. In addition, the challenges and future perspectives of the enantioselective analyses of the chiral pollutants have been included.
