The various methods of molecular spectroscopy (UV-VIS, NIR, hyperspectral techniques, Raman, etc.) offer a wide range of possibilities, from the quantitative study of physicochemical and chemical properties to the structural investigation of molecules.
This broad applicability also means that spectroscopy used in almost all scientific fields (agriculture, food, medicine, diagnostics, etc.), complemented by the science of chemometrics, which is essential for data processing.
This Special Issue on “Application of Molecular Spectroscopy in Agricultural and Food Sciences” seeks high-quality works focusing on the field of agriculture and food science.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
Applications of molecular spectroscopy in quality assurance;
Advanced analytical techniques for monitoring agricultural products, food raw materials, and finished food products;
New food testing advances (e.g., insect fortified foods);
Relationship between UV/VIS, NIR, etc. techniques and chemometrics;
Recent applications of molecular spectroscopy;
Monitoring manufacturing processes using advanced molecular spectroscopy techniques;
Adulteration and origin identification.

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. Processes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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). 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.
