In recent years, advances in analytical methodologies in the field of food analysis have experienced continuous growth. These achievements are especially significant in the coupling of liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry (LC-MS). The high variety of food constituents together with the diverse nature of food matrices means that this research topic is of great interest and still under investigation. Moreover, novel extraction procedures and instrumentation have allowed delving into minor food constituents and metabolites with interesting applications.
For this reason, this Special Issue of Separations focused on the development and applications of liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry in food analysis will provide an overview of the current status and future perspectives of the status of this powerful analytical platform in the field of food analysis.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Analytical methodologies for food analysis: HPLC, UHPLC, nano-HPLC, mass spectrometry (MS) and tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS).
- LC-MS analysis of chemicals present in food: lipids, carbohydrates, glycoproteins, vitamins, flavonoids, mycotoxins, pesticides, allergens, food additives, etc.
- LC-MS analysis of different food matrices: vegetables, fruits, dairy products, cereals, olive oil, wines, etc.
- LC-MS analysis for food authentication and adulteration.
This Special Issue titled “Development and Applications of Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry in Food Analysis” will include a selection of recent research and current review articles about novel analytical methodology advances regarding food analysis with LC-MS. This Special Issue is particularly focused on articles describing the advances and optimization of LC-MS analysis for food components.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Separations is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
