Special Issue "Phytochemistry, Biological Activities and Applications of the Piperaceae"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 August 2019
The Piperaceae is a large family with as many as 50 genera and nearly 4000 species. Members of the Piperaceae, especially Peperomia and Piper species, are rich sources of biologically active phytochemicals with a high structural diversity. In this special issue, we invite reviews and research articles that identify the chemical components, demonstrate the biological activities, and illustrate recent advances and discoveries in the Piperaceae.
