Two examples are presented, sulfa antibiotics in water and stanazolol fragmentation, to answer the question of how much resolving power is enough for work with small molecules.

A review highlighting the recent development on flow-injection analysis (FIA)–mass spectrometry (MS) to bring more attention to this effort.

This article reports on the isolation, purification, and characterization of phorbol esters in Jatropha curcas seeds.

Here, the process to build an accurate mass database is thoroughly described and applications are commented on.

The coupling of HILIC with reversed-phase HPLC and API-MS will become routine in the future, particularly in fields like metabolomics and environmental analysis that regularly involve nontargeted screening of large numbers of compounds in complex mixtures.
