Metabolomics is the comprehensive evaluation of endogenous metabolites and tries to systematically identify and quantify metabolites from a biological pattern. Small-molecule metabolites have an important function in organic structures and represent appealing candidates to recognize diseased phenotypes. Metabolites represent a numerous group of low-molecular-weight structures including lipids, amino acids, peptides, nucleic acids, natural acids, nutrients, thiols and carbohydrates, which makes the analysis a difficult project. The current rapid development of several analytical structures, consisting of GC, HPLC, UPLC, CE coupled to MS and NMR spectroscopy, ought to permit separation, detection, characterization, and quantification of such metabolites and associated metabolic pathways.
