In this review the most important techniques, which are developed to hyphenate capillary electrophoresis to
mass spectrometry (CE-MS), suitable for forensic analysis, are summarized. Analytes of interest are divided into four
main parts, namely, compounds with amine containing side chains, compounds with N-containing saturated ring structures,
other heterocycles and peptides. Sample pre-treatments and direct injection modes used in CE-MS for forensic
analysis are briefly discussed from critical point of view. Special emphasis is placed to point out the advantages of mass
spectrometric detection compared to UV- and laser- induced fluorescence (LIF) detections.
