Oils and fats, being an important source of fat-soluble nutrients, essential fatty acids, as well as energy, are daily consumed by humans. Lipids from natural sources are mainly composed of triacylglycerol (95%~98%) and minor components, such as tocochromanols, phytosterols, phenolic compounds, and squalene, and the previous studies have observed that most of these minor components have antioxidant properties. Moreover, the current research is mainly focusing on the physiological and biological activities of lipids and their possible relationships with human health. In addition, in the food industry, oils and fats could also provide numerous lipid-based foods, such as bread, biscuit, chocolate, margarine, and frozen dessert, with the desirable texture, flavor, and taste. However, the properties, quality and oxidative stability of food products are significantly influenced by fatty acid and triacylglycerol composition, due to the different physico-chemical properties, including melting behavior, crystallization, solid fat content, and interfacial and rheological properties.
This Special Issue will include original research articles, reviews, and short communications related to the health benefits, physicochemical properties, synthesis, processing, oxidation, nutrition and biotechnology of lipids, but are not limited to the above.

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 2300 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.
