Polyphenols are highly interesting natural products that can become innovative tools for pharmaceutical/cosmetic/nutraceutical research. This Special Issue aims to focus on green chemistry approaches that try to achieve sustainability at the molecular level. Examples include the amelioration of extraction methods, and chemical modifications to improve the solubility, bioavailability, shelf-life, and stability of polyphenols.
