Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Interest in phytochemicals, bioactive compounds, natural products, and functional foods has grown in recent years. Scientific research is mainly focused on identifying and quantifying biologically active molecules and relative health-promoting properties in natural products. Innovative analytical strategies (spectrophotometric techniques and chromatographic fingerprinting coupled to mass spectrometry and chemometrics) allow identifying and quantifying natural raw material or commercial derived-products; fluorescence, IR, and NMR represent other analytical techniques which are especially important to chemically characterize the health-promoting value of compounds included in natural products.

This Special Issue will collect recent review papers and high-quality research in the field of i) potential healthy natural resources and relative derived products; ii) evaluation of their potential health-positive properties; and iii) phytochemical characterization of the main bioactive molecules through traditional and innovative analytical strategies.

Dr. Dario Donno
Guest Editor

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. AppliedChem is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
