Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nowadays the possibility of analysing, tracing, and certifying food products (as well as supplements) is of fundamental importance in order to guarantee not only the quality of the product, but above all to safeguard the health of the consumer.

In this perspective, the availability of analytical procedures, instrumental configurations, and statistical and chemometric methods that can be integrated to maximize analytical information is fundamental.

An element not to be overlooked is also the scalability of the processes from the laboratory to the industrial level and the quality control and traceability (as well as the verification of the authenticity of the product).

This Special Issue will highlight and describe the latest improvements in instrument configurations, techniques developed, and particularly, innovative statistical approaches applied to analyse the data. Additionally, it aims to attract contributions on all aspects linked to the different approaches used for food analysis, focusing particularly on the fundamental parameters of interest to set-up an analytical procedure, such as precision and trueness (that together give accuracy); the limits of detection and quantification; selectivity; and, especially, sensitivity, GAC (green analytical chemistry) approach, quality control and traceability

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.
