The market for natural products has increased exponentially in the last decade. The awareness of a strict correlation between bioactive compounds contained in foods and plants is the reason for the success of natural bioactive compounds and nutraceuticals. Diets based on nutraceuticals and natural medicaments, such as in traditional medicine, are currently representative of a renewed healthy lifestyle.
In this context, the need to characterize bioactive compounds in natural complex matrices or their commercial product derivatives is mandatory. Advanced analytical methods play a key role in this field, allowing for the deep correlation between compounds and pharmacological activity and safeguarding consumer health by proper quality control protocols, enabling regulatory bodies to act where necessary.
In this contest, hyphenated analytical techniques are still the most resolutive approach when a complete and reliable characterization of complex matrices is required. Despite the great success of recent fast analytical techniques, coupling separative methods with MS provides highly informative results, in terms of quali-quantitative data and validation method parameters.
Research studies focused on the “Application of Hyphenated Techniques in Natural Product Analysis” are welcome in this Special Issue, aimed to highlight the great potential of combined powerful analytical strategies and their wide range of applications.

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. Separations 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 2600 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.
