Special Issue Information
The development of natural antimicrobial agents has always been a research hotspot. In the past few decades, there has been an urgent need to discover new antimicrobial compounds or extracts to address the crucial problem of increasing microbial resistance, and the search for new antimicrobial agents has captured the interest of many research groups. In recent years, the active ingredients of natural extract have played an important role in new antimicrobial drugs and food preservatives because of their high efficiency and low toxicity. Authors are encouraged to submit original research articles or reviews to this Special Issue that explore the role of natural antimicrobial agents of drugs and food preservatives, as well as their corresponding mechanisms.
We look forward to your contributions.
