Special Issue "Natural Antioxidants, Dyes and Their Synthetic Analogs"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2023 | Viewed by 4159
Beneficial properties of natural compounds can be improved by covalent or noncovalent chemical modifications. The modified derivatives may find useful applications in medical and material sciences. Antioxidant compounds, especially with an extended conjugated electron system, such as carotenoids or polyphenols, are proven radical scavengers and efficient agents against oxidative stress-related conditions. Nevertheless, these compounds are also promising candidates to create novel structures being organic conductive materials, molecular wires, or dyes with specific light-absorption properties, as well as amphipatic molecules with self-organization.
The aim of this Special Issue, “Natural Antioxidants, Dyes and Their Synthetic Analogs” is to collect the recent discoveries about the native or modified structures, including isolation, structure elucidation, chemical modification, (semi)synthesis, antioxidant studies, structure-activity relationship, synergic effects, delivery, supramolecular organization, electrochemical and spectroscopic properties, in silico calculations, and other related findings. Both original full research articles and reviews on these topics are welcome.
We look forward to your valuable contribution.

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 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.
