Pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs) and their N-oxides (PANOs) are natural toxins, exclusively biosynthesized by a wide variety of plant species (>6000). They are secondary plant metabolites against herbivores and are believed to be one of the most widely spread natural toxins. Human poisoning cases have been documented; they are characterized by acute and chronic liver damage, pulmonary hypertension, cardiac or kidneys injuries, and can lead to death. Therefore, the development of efficient analytical methods is required to detect PAs/PANOs even at low levels.   The Belgian Scienti…
