After the first two editions and considering the vigorous investigational activity on this intriguing topic, we can now announce with great pleasure the third edition of the Special Issue “Natural Secondary Metabolites”.
Since ancient times, secondary metabolites that are produced by plants, animals, fungi, and microorganisms have been used for their interesting properties as medical substances, poisons, dyes, antimicrobials, insecticides, flavoring substances, etc.
Several secondary metabolites mediate relationships between organisms, such as virulence factors, attractants for other useful organisms, defense factors, etc. Moreover, their distribution is often cross-species, as observed, for example, in plants and their endophytes. Finally, secondary metabolites show interesting action mechanisms and peculiar chemical properties.
The principal goal of this Special Issue is to cover all aspects of chemical and biotechnological relevance, such as extraction, identification, structural and stereostructural elucidation, biological activities, the rules of biotic and abiotic factors on secondary metabolites’ expressions, the development of analytical methods for their detection, and other related research.
Thus, this Special Issue aims to collect contributions from the field and provide a platform to make them more visible to the scientific community.

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. Molecules 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 2700 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.
