Phytochemicals are numerous and have been studied intensely for basic science and applied research. They constitute a wealth of natural resources especially as new drugs or candidate drugs. Phytochemical research encompasses old and new disciplines of plant biology, medicinal chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, pharmcogenomics, proteomics, and metabolomics. It utilizes traditional and rapidly advancing analytical methods and instrumentation such as differential solvent extraction, gas or liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry, nuclear magnetic resonance and electron-spin resonance, and gene and protein arrays for fractionation, purification, chemical and genetic fingerprinting, derivatization, modification, synthesis, and clinical trials of photochemicals starting from cell-line to animal and patient studies.
This special issue of Molecules on "Phytochemicals: Analytical and Medicinal Chemistry" welcomes submission of previously unpublished manuscripts from original work on all the above aspects.
Prof. Dr. Christopher W.K. Lam
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
