Natural products are chemical compounds or substances originating from living organisms and can also be prepared via chemical synthesis. Natural products have been broadly utilized in the development of dietary supplements, medicines and pharmaceutics, cosmetics, and foods. However, identifying and determining active ingredients from natural products are prerequisites. This Special Issue welcomes research and review articles searching for active constituents from natural products, including methods of isolation and identification, and the development of protocols to regulate biological activities. Active ingredients involved in agricultural, food, medicinal, and pharmaceutical chemistry are cordially invited.
