Phenolic compounds are ubiquitous in plants which collectively synthesize several thousand different chemical structures characterized by hydroxylated aromatic ring(s). These compounds play several important functions in plants. They represent a striking example of metabolic plasticity, enabling plants to adapt to changing biotic and abiotic environments and provide to plant products color, taste, technological properties, and putative health-promoting benefits. Phenolic compounds represent the most studied phytochemicals and have been widely exploited as model systems in different areas of plant research. These components are known as secondary plant metabolites and also possess antimicrobial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties, along with their high antioxidant capacity. Many efforts have been made to provide a highly sensitive and selective analytical method for the determination and characterization of polyphenols. The aim of this Special Issue is to provide information on the most recent developments in the chemical investigation of polyphenols, emphasizing the extraction, separation, and analysis of these compounds via chromatographic and spectral techniques.

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. 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 2000 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.
