This article gives an up-to-date commentary on chiral liquid chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry for the determination of pharmacologically active chiral compounds (cPACs) (including illicit drugs) in environmental matrices. Several applications are discussed to demonstrate the benefits of performing environmental analysis of cPACs at the enantiomeric level. Finally, future perspectives in this rapidly developing field of research are outlined.

Redox reactions are integral parts of many cellular processes. They are therefore extensively studied in vitro and in vivo. Electrochemistry (EC) represents a purely instrumental approach to characterize direct and indirect effects of redox reactions on bioorganic molecules. This review highlights important trends and recent developments.
