Ionization suppression is a serious problem in liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry-based metabolomics, and stable isotope dilution-based comparative quantification is one of the most important methods of overcoming this problem. Herein, the use of [13C]-methylation-based stable isotope dilution for comparative quantification of flavonoids is demonstrated. This is in contrast to the equivalent deuterium labeling methylation method, which has an adverse isotope effect on reverse phase chromatography.
