Plant and food analysis is continuously demanding the development of more robust, efficient, sensitive, and cost-effective analytical methodologies to guarantee the safety, quality, and traceability of foods in compliance with legislation and consumers’ demands. Thus, it is of great interest the research about novel technologies used in plant and food analysis of bioactive compunds including an in-depth analysis of several specific approaches, and an examination of the most innovative applications and future trends.
This Special Issue, “Analytical Techniques in Plant and Food Analysis”, will cover a selection of recent research topics and current review articles related to the use of, mainly, “green” extraction process for extracting bioactive compounds from matrices such as plants, food or food by-products and their characterization by advanced separative techniques. We are particularly interested in articles describing new analytical strategies to determine bioactive compounds in plants, food and food by-products with selected applications related to current trends in food chemistry.

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 papers will be 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.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 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.
