Synchrotron radiation has notable quality such as high brightness, high level of polarization, high collimation, high brilliance, high intensity and wide tunability in energy/wavelength. The application of synchrotron radiation based techniques in the speciation, distribution, transformation and interactions with organic matters and proteins of mercury to elucidate the environmental health effect and ecotoxicity of mercury are introduced in this paper. These techniques include X-ray absorption spectroscopy, X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction spectrometry, small angel X-ray scattering and scanning transmission X-ray microscopy, etc. The future aspects of application of synchrotron radiation based techniques in the study on the environmental health effects and ecotoxicology of mercury are also described.
