Method development combined with the significant advances of mass spectrometry (MS) promotes versatility of MS applications to biological research of both small molecules and macromolecules. In this thesis, three aspects of the application of MS-based approaches are discussed; they include (1) properties and their implications on toxicity of biologically important quinones, (2) sample preparation for nanoliter analysis, and (3) affinities of antibody-peptide interactions.
