Special Issue in Applied Sciences: Innovative Applications of Novel Natural Products in Medicinal and Agricultural Research
Although natural products are already used in many applications, a central challenge of natural product research is to evaluate the mode of action of natural products more precisely. This requires sophisticated new methods for identifying the molecular mechanism of action in various living systems, from which new applications can be evaluated. The effect of single pure substances needs to be investigated, as well as the effect of synergisms of chemically pure compounds in order to understand the enhanced effect of, for example, plant extracts in comparison to the pure substance. This Special Issue welcomes reviews and original manuscripts that investigate and describe novel methods or results of mode of action analysis of natural products starting from chemically pure compounds (i.e., not natural extracts) and, based on these, initiate and stimulate applied research for novel uses of natural products. Technical, pharmaceutical, and agricultural applications are all invited.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2300 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.
