There is growing interest in the study of bioactive compounds from plant materials (e.g. fruits, vegetables, flowers, cereals, pulses, leaves, herbs, trees, among others), which display a wide range of therapeutic properties, due to their antioxidant activity. The first step in applying these antioxidant compounds to foods, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals is to extract them.
The extraction conditions may not be the same for different plant materials since they are influenced by several parameters, such as the chemical nature of the sample, the method and solvent used, the agitation, the extraction time, the solute/solvent ratio, and the temperature. For this reason, many studies have been carried out to increase the knowledge of this field and optimize the recovery of natural antioxidant compounds from plants.
We invite you to submit your latest research findings or review articles for this Special Issue, which will collect current research on antioxidant compounds recovered from plants and their potential application in foods, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.
