In living organisms complex vital processes take place having at their origin biochemical interactions based on physico-chemical transformations which are going on in a continuous, interrelational, reversible or non-reversible way. The paper presents conceptual data on the new domain of "omic sciences" limited to metabolomics. In this framework, references are made to applicational aspects integrating general principles regarding the methods of separation and detection of metabolites with small molecules Distinctly, there are presented applications in biochemistry and molecular biology, in genomics, in agrobiology and food science, in pharmacology (medicine). The metabolomics-bioinformatics relationship is highlighted in obtaining "databases" of applicative interest.
