Microorganisms produce secondary metabolites, which are low molecular weight compounds with various bioactive properties that play key roles in microbial physiology, growth and survival. In recent years, interest in microbial secondary metabolites has surged, owing to their potential as a source for drug discovery, as well as their application in agriculture and as biosurfactants. This work presents a novel UHPLC-MS/MS-based method for the high-throughput characterisation of the secondary metabolites pyoverdines from crude bacterial extracts.
