Plants are a source of a large number and amount of natural compounds, many of them with great biological importance as antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, anti-cancer, etc. For this reason, many of these plants and their extracts, are commonly used in agri-food, pharmaceutical or agrochemical industries. In this sense, the techniques of extraction of natural compounds in plants are used with a double purpose: (i) to extract compounds for the analysis of the content of natural compounds in plant matrix (quality control of raw material, intermediate products, and final products ); (ii) to extract and obtain extracts rich in these natural compounds to be used for different purposes (food, pharmaceutical or chemical products, etc.).
This special volume will focus on the extraction, identification, analysis and use of natural compounds present in plants, for both, analytical and industrial purposes. We welcome novel research and reviews covering all related topics in extraction methods of natural compounds in plants (ultrasound assisted extraction, microwave assisted extraction, pressurized liquid extraction, supercritical fluid extraction, etc.), identification and analysis of natural compounds in plants, the obtaining and the usage of plant extracts, the use of by-products from the agri-food industry and, the quality control of raw materials, intermediate products and final products of plant origin.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Agronomy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
