Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

There has been increasing interest recently in using alternative green technologies for the isolation of bioactive metabolites from medicinal plants. Phenolic compounds are the most abundant group of phytochemicals found in plants as secondary metabolites. They are involved in the adaptation of the plant to its environment and in its defense against aggressors. A multitude of studies have confirmed the remarkable biological roles of polyphenols thanks to their antioxidant potential. The most common techniques for the extraction of phenolic compounds are liquid–liquid extraction and solid-phase extraction. However, green extraction using deep eutectic solvents and agrosolvents provides many benefits, including its biodegradability, safety, eco-friendliness, low cost, easy preparation, and wide availability,  making deep eutectic solvents an alternative to conventional solvents. Addionnaly, the extract-based nanoformulations have promising proficiency as they improve the bioavailability and stability of the antioxidant phenolic compounds.

This Special Issue, entitled “Green Extraction of Phenolic Compounds with Antioxidant Potential”, intends to provide recent updates on the use of novel strategies to improve the recovery of phenolic compounds from renewable plant sources using design-based statistical modeling. In addition, studies on the implementation of specific green principles in phenolic compound extraction and the nanoformulation of extracts for pharmaceutical applications are welcome.

As the Guest Editors, we invite you to contribute a full research paper or a review for possible publication in this Special Issue.

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.
