With a perspective on recent LC/MS applications that illustrates contributions to the acceleration of drug development, new insights may be derived to speculate on future prospects. Current trends highlight the growing importance of structural information and a waning perception of LC/MS as a specialized or difficult analysis. A perspective on future applications of LC/MS in drug development is presented with an emphasis on integrated sample generation and analysis activities.
