Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Separation and purification techniques play important roles in modern food development and manufacture, which can improve the comprehensive utilization of food raw materials, maintain and enhance the nutrition and flavor of food, and improve food safety. Separation and purification technologies are indispensable in the substance-based exploration of functional food, the quantitative structure–activity relationship study of bioactive components, the high-value utilization of agricultural by-products, the extraction of fragrance and aromatic components, pigment extraction and purification, oil extraction, enzyme and vitamin refining, the removal of harmful components, and other fields. With the development of science and technology, an increasing number of separation methods are emerging that are applicable in food research and development. A variety of chromatographic separation techniques are available with high efficiency and flexibility. This Special Issue mainly includes recent studies on novel chromatography-related methods or technologies, as well as new applications in the separation, purification, and findings of bioactive compounds in food-relevant resources.

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. Foods 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 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs).
