The interest in plants as a source of bioactive compounds continues to receive increasing attention in the research community due to the recognized potential that these compounds have. Advances in extraction, identification, and quantification have allowed the development of innovative studies into their role as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-degenerative, and antitumor agents. However, there are many questions still being raised about their efficacy, particularly when in vivo models are used.
Contributions to this Special Edition can cover all aspects related to the extraction, identification, characterization, and quantification of bioactive compounds present in plants and its extracts; demonstration of the mechanisms of antioxidant action; recent advances in analytical methods; new plants with high levels of bioactive compounds; valorization of crops and plants as source of antioxidants compounds; influence of pre- and post-harvest factors on the antioxidant profile in plants; and in vitro and in vivo assays, including clinical and pharmaceutical trials on the effect of these compounds on human and animal health.
