Special Issue in Molecules: Medicinal, Aromatic, and Edible Plants: The Link between Pharmacy, Food, and Nutrition
The interest in foods of plant origin as a source of polyphenols originated in the 1990s and, to date, continue to receive a great deal of attention. The recent advances in analytical approaches, -omic sciences and biotechnology are offering new and interesting insights into the characterization, comprehensive profiling and biological activity of phenolics. In parallel, the recent knowledge on existing in vitro antioxidant assays suggest that further research is still necessary, to move towards measures representative of in vivo conditions.
Contributions to this Special Issue may cover all research aspects related to the characterization of phenolic compounds and their antioxidant capacity, including (but not limited to) methods for their extraction, purification, characterization and quantification; the elucidation of their mechanisms of action with focus on antioxidant capacity; improved methods for assessing antioxidant capacity (cell-based assays are encouraged); and the effect of both pre- and post-harvest factors on phenolic profiles in plants.

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. 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 1200 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.
