Polyphenols are one of the secondary metabolites found in plants and food ingredients. Over the past 20 years, a number of studies have revealed their function on life activities, which correlates with the prevention of neurodegenerative diseases, obesity, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and so on. Recently, there has been a great amount of interest and various scientific advances in the molecular mechanism of these compounds, which suggests a potential of clinical application and novel biological process as well.
The Special Issue aims to collect cutting-edge studies on the bioactivity of polyphenols and their related compounds, which could contribute to the improvement of human health and disease prevention. The Special Issue is expected to examine the molecular mechanism on the basis of experimental approaches from the fields of cell biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, pharmacology, and chemical biology. Original articles and reviews in these areas are of interest.

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 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs).
