Antioxidant capacity can be defined as the aptitude of a molecule, a fluid, or a mixture to avoid the oxidation of a substrate of interest. The oxidation processes usually referred to are those involving free radicals, i.e., reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS), and the substrates of interest are commonly, but not exclusively, of organic nature, such as food, beverages, or blood.
Several methods have been developed to define antioxidant capacity, and the results obtained via different procedures are often correlated, as well as with the concentration of the redox active components of the mixture. Moreover, many proposed methods provide complex signals that can be useful to decompose via mathematical treatment.
Therefore, chemometric tools may be suitable for treating row data and results obtained by studying the antioxidant capacity of molecules or mixtures. The aims may be different:
- Finding relations between antioxidant capacity and different features;
- Defining the origin of the sample or highlighting the differences between production processes as a function of antioxidant properties;
- Extracting information from complex raw signals obtained via methods devoted to evaluating antioxidant capacity.
We invite you to submit a review or research article where chemometric tools are helpful in determining antioxidant capacity or processing antioxidant capacity data.
We look forward to your contribution.

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. Antioxidants 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 2900 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.
