The European Green Deal sets out a number of ambitious targets related to protection of human health, zero pollution for water, air, and soil, and sustainable food systems.
To ensure the development of a clean and safe environment and the boost of a “Farm to Fork strategy” under a circular economy perspective, a number of actions must be implemented. Among others, the development, testing, and validation of analytical approaches for the characterization of environmental and food matrices plays a prominent role, for promoting and supporting the deep and reliable characterization of novel materials, the detection of possible emerging contaminants, and the quantification of major and in trace analytes.
The aim of this Special Issue is to collect prominent scientific contributions from qualified experts in the area of novel analytical methods for food and environment. The topics of interest for submission include but are not limited to:
- Innovative food packaging materials;
- Antioxidants and antimicrobial molecules;
- Shelf-life studies;
- Protein, peptides, and metabolites;
- Micro- and nanoplastics;
- Bacteria and viruses;
- Analytical strategies against food adulteration and frauds;
- Food traceability;
- Water and air monitoring strategies;
- Metrological approaches and method validation;
- Analytical portable techniques;
- Emerging food contaminants.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2400 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.
