Research progress of separation analytical methods in last decades have influenced many areas of chemistry and related fields. Among the most important areas for a human life, which is tightly connected with the development and application of various analytical separations, is the food chemistry area. For the analysis of food components, nutraceuticals, additives, and contaminants, separations and especially chromatographic methods are widely applied. The recent advances in column technology, novel separation modes, multidimensional chromatography, hyphenation with mass spectrometric detection, among all, provide powerful tools for comprehensive characterization of composition of food samples. This Special Issue focuses on the most recent and innovative approaches of separation methods in food analysis. Researchers are encouraged to submit research papers describing new developments in separation methods intended for food analysis as well as reviews illustrating application of emerging separation methods in analysis of nutritients, bioactive compounds and contaminants in foods. Manuscripts describing novel approaches of sample preparations,or original chemometric approaches in connection with a chromatographic analysis of food samples are also welcomed.

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.
