Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue highlights recent developments in the field of residue analysis in food and environment. Welcome submissions should include well validated analytical methods with demonstrated improvements over existing methods and/or application to novel compounds. Submissions will be accepted across fields including screening methods (e.g., immunochemical assays), sensors, chromatographic methods, molecular spectroscopy and Mass Spectrometry. Manuscripts reporting the fate of residues in food, environment, e.g. persistency, metabolic studies and processing will also be welcomed.

In order to give an update of recent progresses in technique improvements and new applications, you are kindly invited to submit your original articles or reviews of your work.
