Prof. Dr. Susan E. Ebeler
Department of Viticulture and Enology, University of California, Davis, CA, USA
Interests: the development and application of analytical chemistry; techniques to study wine flavor chemistry; the physico-chemical; interactions of flavors with nonvolatile wine components
Dr. Helene Hopfer

Interests: Development and application of analytical methods for food quality assessment; the effect of processing on flavor and elemental composition of wine; elemental profiling for authentification purposes; biochemistry of flavor compound generation pre and postharvest
This collection will highlight all aspects of wine chemistry from chemical and biochemical reactions in grape berries, to fermentation and storage chemistry, to linkages between chemical composition and sensory properties. We encourage submissions that explore the chemical diversity of grapes and wines, particularly components that impact grape and wine color, flavor and off-flavor, stability and other attributes which influence perceived quality such as pigments; taste, mouthfeel and aroma compounds; nutrients; plant hormones; macromolecules; and other plant and microbial metabolites. Papers that focus on development and application of new analytical tools for characterizing grape and wine composition are also encouraged.
We invite submissions of original research and review articles that explore contemporary issues in grape and wine chemistry for inclusion in this Special Issue of Molecules.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the collection 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.
