Phenolic compounds are a category of phytochemicals widely distributed in nature and found in the human diet. Despite their important role in taxonomic issues, due to their biological properties, phenolics and polyphenolics have been extensively studied and there is evidence of their relevance in disease prevention, including major human diseases such as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and neurodegenerative diseases. These compounds are metabolized in vivo and circulate in the organism as derivatives that are also bioactive.
This Special Issue will focus on several aspects related to these compounds, from synthesis to extraction, analysis, metabolism and bioactivity, also covering bioavailability and toxicological features, by exploring the relevant contemporary scientific literature to provide a general perspective of this broad area.
