Special Issue "Novel Synthetic Compounds and Natural Products for Pharmaceutical, Personal Care and Cosmetic: Analytical aspects, Structure Elucidation, Bioactivities and Formulation"
A special issue of Cosmetics (ISSN 2079-9284).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2020).
Interests: organic natural products; extraction and isolation from complex matrices and their molecular structure recognition through application of advanced Nuclear Magnetic Resonance techniques
The cosmetic chemistry is in continuous development and every day new compounds, either specifically designed synthetic chemicals or Natural Products, reveal interesting properties for application in cosmetic production with different and specialized functions. There is an increasing interest of the cosmetic industry in the development of novel products with functional ingredients (for bioactivities but also for product stability). In this context both synthetic chemistry and Natural Products offer a wide plethora of compounds with different physico-chemical characteristic and possible applications.
This Special Issue "Novel Synthetic Compounds and Natural Products for Pharmaceutical, Personal Care and Cosmetic: Analytical aspects, Structure Elucidation, Bioactivities and Formulation." wants to be a platform to present the utilization in cosmetic products of newly described compounds, either natural products and of synthetic origin. The overview of the current knowledge about their structural description, analytical aspects, bioactivities and technological functions may be provided through original papers, reviews and short communications.
