Food safety and quality always represent an important topic. The accurate quantification of related components (pesticides and veterinary drugs, mycotoxins, persistent organic pollutants, nutrient content, etc.) plays key roles in the guarantee of food safety and quality. Concerning food analysis, sample pretreatment aims to enrich target analytes and remove matrix components (lipids, proteins, salts, acids, pigments, etc.). New extraction or purification sorbents provide high specificity and efficiency for the targets. Combined strategies exhibit excellent performance in lowering matrix effects. Afterwards, detection techniques (chromatography, mass spectrometry, nuclear magnetic resonance and their tandom techniques) provide the final quantification results. Some statistical strategies show great potential in origin traceability, authenticity or adulteration.
This Special Issue welcomes any developments in novel sample pretreatment, detection techniques or statistical strategies to realize the accurate quantification of food components.

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 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.
