Special Issue in Molecules: Natural Products in Italy
Natural products are a rich source of novel biologically/pharmacologically-active compounds. Due to their high structural diversity and complexity, they represent interesting structural scaffolds that can offer promsing candidates for the study of biologically-active source of new drugs, functional foods and food additives. In recent years, great effort has been devoted to the quali- and quantitative analysis of plant extracts and bioactive metabolites.
This Special Issue welcomes original research and reviews of literature on all aspects of the analysis of plant extracts and bioactive compounds.
