The importance of antioxidants in a variety of fields ranging from health to food to innovative materials has increasingly been appreciated. Yet, despite the wealth of research work related to antioxidants in recent literature, there are still many issues to be addressed concerning the mechanism of action, the bioavailability of dietary antioxidants, oxidative stress and antioxidant defense systems, antioxidant-based therapeutic strategies, antioxidant functional food, and design of biomaterials with antioxidant properties for use in biomedical applications or functional packaging. We also have to continue pursuing new natural sources of antioxidants, while shifting toward sustainable methodologies for their extraction and, finally, we need to standardize the methods for evaluating and ranking antioxidant power. This Special Issue will collect contributions from attendees of “The First International Conference on Antioxidants: Sources, Methods, Health Benefits and Industrial Applications” scheduled on March 2022, but it is open to researchers that are interested in publishing their work related to the following main topics covered by the conference sessions
- Health Outcomes of Antioxidants and Oxidative Stress with special emphasis on:
Cancer; cardiovascular diseases; microbiome and gut health; metabolic disorders; neurodegenerative pathologies
- Antioxidant Enzyme Systems with special emphasis on:
ROS; RNS and RSS; mitochondria; redox signaling; photooxidative stress
- Natural and Synthetic Antioxidants with special emphasis on:
Occurrence; preparation methods; mechanisms of action; evaluation/measurement methodologies; green extraction procedures
- Industrial Applications with special emphasis on:
Biomaterials; functional packaging; biomedical devices

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Antioxidants 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 2900 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.
