The mass spectrometry of cardenolides is briefly reviewed. Recent developments in the characterization of the cardiac glycosides by a combination of electron impact and field ionization methods are discussed, with emphasis on the information obtained regarding the sequence of monosaccharide residues in the case of oligosaccharide glycosides. Recent efforts to understand the detailed fragmentation behaviour of cardenolide aglycones in terms of their structure and substitution pattern are also discussed.
