Which small biomolecules (up to the size of amino acids) are present in (almost) every eucaryotic cell and thus part of its biochemical network, constantly and inevitably being produced and metabolized?

Is there either a comprehensive list (e.g. being a sublist of this one) or at least a number: How many are there (roughly)?

To ask it differently: How many small molecules are in the metabolome of (almost) all eucaryotic cells?

Side question: Does the famous Metabolic Pathways poster contain all of them, or which percentage (roughly)?
