Melatonin functions as a free radical scavenger and controls the regulation of the sleep–wake cycle in mammals, while serotonin is the main intermediate in melatonin biosynthesis. In this paper, melatonin and serotonin have been detected and quantified for the first time in eight different sweet cherry cultivars using high performance liquid chromatography with mass spectrometry detection. The limits of detection of the proposed analytical method were 4.3 ng/mL for melatonin and 3.0 ng/mL for… Expand
