      High-performance thin-layer chromatography combined with effect-directed assays and high-resolution mass spectrometry as an emerging hyphenated technology: A tutorial review
      Gertrud E. MORLOCK (Chair of Food Sci., Inst. of Nutrit. Sci. & TransMIT Center for Effect-Directed Anal., Justus Liebig Univ. Giessen, Heinrich-Buff-Ring 26-32, 35392, Giessen, Germany,

      Anal Chim Acta 1180 (2021) 338644. Review with 120 references on HPTLC combined with effect-directed assays (EDA) and high-resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS). Brief introduction of status quo of these emerging technologies, involving targeted, untargeted and predictive strategies. Hyphenated HPTLC has great potential for solving pressing analytical questions because it provides information on the effects from individual compounds in complex or natural samples, it allows separation in parallel, and the separation is combined with effect-directed detection using enzymatic or biological assays, capable to select the important compounds in a complex sample for further characterization by HRMS. Overview of emerging hyphenated technologies driven by HPTLC, including non-target high-throughput 8D hyphenation, minimum requirements for sample preparation and comprehensive effect evaluation, agonistic and antagonistic fast effect detection, identifying multi-potent or multi-modulating compounds and simulated on-surface digestion or metabolization for study of biotransformation. HPTLC is a versatile, creative and flexible open-format technique with the benefits of super-hyphenation, minimum requirements for sample preparation, detection of multi-modulating compounds or agonistic versus antagonistic effects, and miniaturization of on-surface metabolization. Discussion of the potential offered by the miniaturized open-source LabToGo system.
