Food chemical analysis is based on the use of several biochemical, chemical, and molecular methods. However, the increasing demand to control and monitor food samples in real-time (e.g., on-line, at line) demands the development of innovative analytical systems (e.g., a combination of advanced instrumental methods, sensors, and chemometric tools). It has been recognized that the ability to analyse food samples is of paramount importance, in order to accomplish consistent quality during production as demanded by regulators and consumers. In addition, the food industry is facing new challenges such as food integrity and safety where advanced instrumental methods and sensors in combination with chemometric tools will have an important role to play.
The Special Issue “Food Analytical Chemistry—Advanced Instrumental Methods and Sensors” aims to summarize the state of the art of the research, technology, and novel applications of advanced instrumental methods and sensors in the field of food analytical chemistry.

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.
