Oxidative stress is linked to many pathologies, ranging from cancer to neurodegenerative diseases, and modulators of oxidative stress are believed to be of therapeutic value in some of them, by acting on different mechanisms, such as scavenging and metal chelating effects, mimicking the antioxidant enzymes or upregulation of their expression, activating the nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2), inhibiting pro-oxidant enzymes, etc.
This Special Issue aims to provide a forum for the dissemination of the latest information on new methods for extraction, isolation, synthesis, or derivatization of modulators of oxidative stress, and on in vitro and in vivo characterization of their biological activities in view of possible pharmacological applications.

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 1800 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.
