Abstract The separation, identification and quantification of constituents in complex plant extracts always has been, and most likely will be, a challenging task. Nevertheless, today a multiplicity of different separation techniques, specific stationary phases and detectors are available, helping to achieve the desired selectivity, sensitivity and speed for nearly any separation problem. The most prominent and popular technique in this area of research is definitely the combination of liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry. More than 40 years after its beginning LC–MS can be considered a well-established routine technique, however there is a steady advancement in terms of instrumentation (ultra-high-performance LC, ion mobility MS, etc.), the hyphenation of different techniques (supercritical fluid chromatography − mass spectrometry, two-dimensional techniques, etc.), or the type of analyzed compounds (novel applications). The here presented review aims to consider all of these aspects, focusing on natural products/medicinal plants related LC–MS papers published within the years 2011–2016. It gives a short overview of recent technical trends as well summarizes the most relevant applications ordered by the type of natural products assessed (e.g. acids, alkaloids, flavonoids, terpenes). The respective reports are also differentiated according to the studies purpose (analysis of plant material or pharmacological investigation) and a special chapter is devoted to Traditional Chinese Medicine. For selected reports relevant methodological details are provided and limitations or advantages discussed, so that the current status of LC–MS for natural products analysis is reflected comprehensively.

Abstract The Cannabis sativa L. plant is rich in a wide variety of cannabinoids. Δ 9 –tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ 9 –THC) is the main chemical compound responsible for its psychoactive effect, and it can be identified as [M+H] + and [M-H] − ions at m / z 315 and 313, respectively, where M = C 21 H 30 O 2 . However, six other isomeric or isobaric forms of Δ 9 –THC can exist, which makes its unequivocal characterization a challenge. In this work, ultra-high liquid chromatography coupled to traveling w...

ABSTRACTThe betel quid is one of the most commonly consumed psychoactive substances in the world. By archaeological evidence like the occurrence of areca nuts in archaeological sites, the typical overall reddish-brown staining on prehistoric human teeth or specific artifacts linked with the habit, it is assumed that this tradition reaches back to prehistoric times. Since this kind of evidence is indirect, it is frequently doubted. The present study provides the earliest direct analytical indicat...

Abstract Stevia sugar is widely used in food owing to its advantages of low calorie content and high sweetness. In the production of stevia sugar, stevia leaves are immersed in water to obtain a crude liquor, which contains many impurities, such as proteins, polysaccharides, organic acids, etc. These impurities are removed typically by coagulation and filtration. At present, suppliers of stevia mainly use a “lime + ferrous sulfate (FeSO4)” process as the pretreatment, but residual SO42- can caus...
