Interests: structural characterization, extraction and evaluation/modulation of the antioxidant properties of natural phenolic compounds with particular reference to: a) exploitation of phenolic compounds especially from agri-food by-products for the development of functional materials to be used in cosmetics, food packaging and biomedicine; b) reactivity of natural phenolic compounds with reactive oxygen and nitrogen species and their manipulation/derivatization to improve their functional properties; c) evaluation of the antioxidant properties of phenolic compounds and of complex extracts/matrices by validated chemical assays; d) chemistry of melanin pigments

Special Issue Information
Polyphenols are widely present not only in foods but also in easily accessible sources such as waste materials from agri-food industries. Based on their potent antioxidant and biological properties, the possible exploitation of these compounds as food supplements as well as functional ingredients for biomedical and cosmetic applications has gained more and more attention. This Special Issue welcomes original research articles relating to innovative applications of natural polyphenols from edible or non-edible natural sources in the field of nutrition and biomedicine, e.g., in food supplements or functional foods for the prevention of oxidative-stress-related diseases, as well as additives in biomedical devices, skincare formulations and cosmetic products. The identification of the main phenolic components and the characterization of the antioxidant and other relevant specific properties for their exploitation as functional ingredients in the health, food and/or cosmetic sectors are required. Review articles describing the current state of the art are also welcome.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
