Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Edible fruits, herbs and vegetables usually present high levels of polyphenols, which have high antioxidant activity and are useful under stress conditions in the human body. Not only are edible plants useful from this point of view, so are non-edible plant materials. Hence, interest has grown in the use of natural plant extracts for different applications, mainly for the development of novel food and pharmaceutical products. Many of the protecting effects of natural products are derived from plant secondary metabolites, mainly phenolic compounds. They are also widely studied due to their enzyme inhibitory properties. Most usual assays involve key enzymes that are relevant to metabolic disorders. Consequently, phenolic compounds can be functional in the prevention of many diseases as well as in health maintenance. This Special Issue will cover a wide range of research areas concerning natural products. Research or review articles are welcomed, including but not limited to the identification of novel natural products, determination of phytochemical profiles, the antioxidant activity and bioactivity of novel plant species, advances in sample treatment, improvements in analytical methods for quantitation and quality control purposes, theoretical and experimental studies on the (bio)chemical properties of natural products, and potential industrial applications of new natural products.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Molecules 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 2700 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.
