Phenolic compounds are a large class of plant secondary metabolites displaying different structures. The main groups of phenolic compounds include flavonoids, phenolic acids, tannins, stilbenes, and lignans. Phenolic compounds have been found to exert various activities, such as antioxidant, anti-microbial, anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, as well as prevention of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and diseases associated with oxidative stress. They are synthesized in plants as a response to ecological and physiological pressures such as pathogen and insect attack, UV radiation, and wounding, and at the same time, they are also closely associated with the sensory and nutritional quality of fresh and processed food and plants. In the last few years, the reutilization of food and plants by-products has become a relevant issue as they contain a large number of phenolic compounds that can be extracted and reused.
This Special Issue aims to collect and share studies on the antioxidant capacity of phenolic compounds present in food, plants, and related by-products. In this Topic, the exploitation of extraction processes, analytical methods used for their analyses, evaluation of biological activities, nutritional value, and nutraceutical/innovative applications in different economic sectors of food, plants, and related by-products rich in phenolic compounds are themes to be explored.

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.
