Phenolic compounds constitute one of the most widely distributed groups of substances in the plant kingdom. Nowadays, more than 10,000 different phenolic structures are currently known. In recent years, the study of phytochemicals from plants, compounds which possess beneficial effects on health, has been one of the main activities for the development of functional foods, nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals. The most important effects of phenolic compounds include antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, hepatoprotective, antiviral and antimicrobial activities.
Thus, in the present special issue, research articles related to the identification and/or characterization of phenolic compounds in food, food sub-product and plant matrices by using different extraction procedures and advanced analytical techniques are welcome.
