This review presents recent progress in employing hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC) for glycan and glycopeptides analysis. After an introduction of this technique, the following themes are addressed: (i) implementation of HILIC in large-scale studies for analyzing the human plasma N-glycome; (ii) the use of HILIC UPLC (ultrahigh pressure liquid chromatography) for fast high-resolution runs and its successful application with online MS for glycan and glycopeptide analysis; (iii) high-throughput profiling using HILIC solid-phase extraction in combination with MS detection; (iv) HILIC sample preparation for CE and CGE; (v) the latest glycoproteomic approaches implementing HILIC separation; (vi) future perspectives of HILIC including its use in large-scale glycoproteomics studies such as the analysis of entire glycoproteomes at the glycopeptide level.
